In 1994–95, Michael Jordan returned in the latter half of the regular season. In his return to Madison Square Garden, Jordan scored 55 points and picked up the victory for the Bulls. This game lifted Jordan’s confidence after a mediocre performance in his “comeback game” against the Indiana Pacers. The two teams didn’t meet in the playoffs that season but the animosity between the two teams still grew. It is considered one of the most memorable games in the NBA’s history and a cornerstone in the heated rivalry between the two teams.
