The Dwight Howard era in Los Angeles has finally commenced.
Chris Mullin was putting in work in this game in 1991. The legendary Warriors forward racked up a tasty 38 points in a cheeky 118-110 win over Michael Jordan and the Bulls at the old Chicago Stadium.
While the video below will give you a healthy dose of Jordan highlights, it’s the always dependable Mullin who provides the constant counter punches. It’s a sweet mix of long twos, fadeaways, gravity-defying reverse layups and of course a”deceptively slow” euro-step before we called it a euro-step.
Take nine minutes out of your day and enjoy this little YouTube beauty.
Things of note:
- Tom Tolbert features briefly and most certainly blocked Michael Jordan. He was ripped off on that foul call.
- Mullin scores all these points while also occasionally having to guard Scottie Pippen.
- Cliff Levingston never stood a chance against Mullin, who schooled him like AI on MJ.
And of course, there’s this little gem:
This victory gave the Warriors a nice 3-0 start to their 1991/92 season. While the Warriors ended up bowing out in the first round of the playoffs that year, this was a great start and a great performance from another great Golden State Warrior.
