|In 1997, Jordan's Bulls were seeking a 5th ring in 7 years.|
According to a stat on TNT research, it was the first time that happened to the Bulls in a playoff game since June 8, 1997.
No big deal, right?
Basketball in June means it's probably the NBA Finals. And since it was the year 1997, then that means Michael Jordan was there.
Had to look up the boxscore on this game to see exactly how this type of scoring ineptitude could occur with Mr. 6-for-6-in-the-Finals himself on the roster.
Turns out, that date represents Game 4 of the 1997 NBA Finals. The Bulls were facing the Utah Jazz at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City.
