Published on April 16th, 2015 by Astramskas, David | 2,348 views

Now this is how you end a season – scoring 53, 50 and then 61 points.  The 61 by Jordan vs the Human Highlight Film and his Hawks made Jordan the first person since Wilt Chamberlain to score 3,000 points in a season.  It also allowed him to join Wilt as the only other player to ever score 50+ in 3 consecutive games. Kobe would join the club 20 years later.
