So what do you do for an encore after scoring 50 points in Game 1 of the 1988 playoffs vs the Cavs? How about score 55!
The Cavs would “hold” Jordan to 38 in Game 3 but MJ followed got some payback with a game-high 44 in Game 4.
As awful as Cavs fans felt after that series, they had no idea how much pain was waiting for them in the future, courtesy of his Airness.
