Michael Jordan's Career-High Against Every NBA Team: The GOAT Destroyed The Cleveland Cavaliers (1)

Michael Jordan had a knack for displaying greatness. It was in his DNA. When you look at his best performances in the NBA, some came in the most critical moments of the Finals, while others could have just been because it was Wednesday. Jordan wanted to win at all costs, which was the greatest attribute of his career.

Jordan’s scoring was a sight to see. He could do anything whenever he wanted on most nights. Scoring 40 points almost felt easy when he was on the floor. Looking back, Jordan had some special moments and we take a look at those right now. These are Jordan’s career-highs in points against every team.

Atlanta Hawks - 61 Points

Date: April 16, 1987

Stats: 61 Points, 10 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 4 Steals, 1 Block

As soon as the Hawks walked into the visiting locker room, Jordan walked into the locker room up to Randy Wittman and said a view choice words. It ended up being a long night for Wittman, who guarded Jordan as he made 22 of 38 shots from the field. It came on the heels of back-to-back 50-point outings against the Pacers and the Bucks. In the end, Dominique Wilkins had the biggest play of the night, which included the eventual go-ahead jumper with 11 seconds left. Wilkins still brings the game up to Jordan these days.

Boston Celtics - 63 Points

Date: April 20, 1986

Stats: 63 Points, 5 Rebounds, 6 Assists, 3 Steals, 2 Blocks

In the first round of the playoffs, Jordan scored his legendary 63 points in Game 2, which is the most points scored in a playoff game. Jordan’s effort came up short as the Celtics eventually swept the Bulls, but it gained the respect of Larry Bird, who had won his third straight league MVP. Bird said that Jordan was “God disguised as Michael Jordan.” The following year, Jordan became the second player, after Wilt Chamberlain, to score 3,000 points in a season.

Brooklyn Nets - 58 Points

Date: February 26, 1987

Stats: 58 Points, 8 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 3 Steals, 2 Blocks

The same season that Jordan averaged 37.1 points per game, the Bulls dominated this matchup. The Bulls led by 21 points at halftime and the crowd was urging Jordan to push for 60 points. Jordan could have made it had he not been asked to leave the game with three minutes left. The highlight of the night came with Jordan making 19 consecutive free throws in the third quarter.

Charlotte Hornets - 52 Points

Date: March 11, 1993

Stats: 52 Points, 9 Rebounds, 5 Assists, 2 Steals, 1 Block

Chicago Bulls - 29 Points

Date: January 3, 2002

Stats: 29 Points, 7 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 0 Steals, 1 Block

Given that Jordan spent most of his career in Chicago, he didn’t have many opportunities to score on the team until later in his career. Jordan led the Wizards past the Bulls 89-83 despite a tough shooting night. Jordan made just 9 of 24 shots from the field with five turnovers. It was Jordan’s first game ever against Chicago and the Bulls dropped to 6-25 with the loss at the time.

Detroit Pistons - 61 Points

Date: March 3, 1987

Stats: 61 Points, 7 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 3 Steals, 3 Blocks

Stats: 54 Points, 13 Rebounds, 7 Assists, 1 Steal, 3 Blocks

Jordan’s jumper was unstoppable as was him going to the basket. It seemed like the only person who could truly guard him was himself.

Unfortunately, the night was ruined in overtime when the Lakers won 120-118.

Memphis Grizzlies - 33 Points

After the game, Jordan said that everyone looked at him like he was 50 years old after the Toronto game, which fired up his competitiveness. It was something that happened the previous season when he scored six points, ending a streak of 866 straight double-digit games, and followed it up with 51 and 45 points the next two games.

Miami Heat - 56 Points

Date: April 29, 1992

Stats: 56 Points, 5 Rebounds, 5 Assists, 4 Steals, 2 Blocks

New Orleans Pelicans - 45 Points

Date: February 1, 2003

Stats: 45 Points, 3 Rebounds, 6 Assists, 1 Steal, 1 Block

Sacramento Kings - 49 Points

Video Link: None

Date: February 19, 1988

Stats: 49 Points, 3 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 3 Steals, 3 Blocks

Jordan probably didn’t need to score 49 points to take care of the Kings, but he did it anyway. The Bulls blew out the Kings 111-90 in regular-season action. Jordan made 19 of his 27 shots and did not take a three-point attempt. He also made 11 of 14 shots inside the arc.

Toronto Raptors - 38 Points

Date: November 7, 1995

Stats: 38 Points, 4 Rebounds, 5 Assists, 4 Steals, 0 Blocks

It was just the third game of the season when Jordan torched the Raptors for 38 points. For some reason, Jordan never played very well against Canadian teams, as you can see with his performance against the Grizzlies who were based in Vancouver at the time. However, Jordan scored 38 points twice against Toronto. His best all-around game came in the 1995-1996 season when he shot 13 of 19 from the field to lead Chicago to a nine-point victory.

Utah Jazz - 47 Points

Stats: 47 Points, 4 Rebounds, 9 Assists, 3 Steals, 3 Blocks

Jordan scored 47 points by making 17 of 27 shots with 13 of 16 at the free-throw line. Playing Karl Malone was always a treat for Jordan as the two were longtime rivals.

Washington Wizards - 57 Points

Date: December 23, 1992

Stats: 57 Points, 2 Rebounds, 10 Assists, 3 Steals, 1 Block
