87 - 86

Michael Jordan's last shot in a Chicago uniform will go down as perhaps the most iconic shot in basketball. With 42 seconds left in Game 6 of the Finals, Utah got a three-pointer to give them a three-point lead. Jordan got a quick lay-up to put it within one, but still needed to stop Utah from scoring again. Jordan stole the ball and pulled up to hit a 20-foot jumper with 5 seconds remaining. It was enough for the win and Chicago's 6th championship.

In Game 6 they had blown a double-digit lead in the 4th and were trailing by two points with 14.4 seconds left. Jordan inbounded and got the ball back. He drove up the court and passed to Scottie Pippen who passed to Horace Grant who kicked it out to John Paxson for a three-pointer to give Chicago a 1-point lead with 3.9 seconds remaining.
