This was a scary performance by MJ. With an injured shooting wrist, MJ was coming off one of his worst shooting games ever in game 3 - going just 3-18 for 22 (but with a near triple double with 8 rebs and 11 asts). With the media on him, MJ produced 54pts but the scary part was how he was able to shoot 60% on call. Of course, we saw this happen over and over hundreds of times throughout his whole career but it still never ceased to amaze. This was what MJ was all about - playing in a zone. But the scary part was how he was able to turn it on at will and do it all the time. This performance was just another notch in his legendary masterpieces and it was a badly needed one as the Bulls were threatened on their march to their first 3-peat by the powerful Knicks. With the bruiser NY team winning the first two games, MJ made sure game 4 was theirs by shooting deep jumpers over Starks. Going 6-9 in treys and 18-30 overall, he had a 'quiet' 54. Of course, it's always more fun seeing the dunks and drives but on fundamentals alone, MJ was still his spectacular self and of course, his efficiency guaranteed the only thing that really mattered: victory. As usual, on national TV, when everyone was watching how he might rebound off a bad game, with a knob on his injured wrist, MJ played - just like MJ.
