Tip-Off Timer: Jordan's 64 in 1993
The second highest scoring performance of Michael Jordan's career took place in January of 1993, against a young Shaquille O'Neal and the Orlando Magic. Jordan's Bulls lost the game in overtime, but it wasn't for lack of effort on MJ's part: his 27 made field goals and 49 field goal attempts that night were both career highs.
As you'll see in the following video, almost all of Jordan's points came on jump shots, and only nine of the 64 were made from the free throw line. I would argue that Orlando should have been doubling Jordan after the first quarter, but honestly, it's hard to criticize a team that ended up with the victory.
