Cleveland Cavaliers - 69 (OT)
The highest scoring game of Jordan's career came during an overtime thriller with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It's a bit of a surprise that his best-ever scoring night came before the now-Hall of Famer had even lifted a championship, but Jordan really put the Cavs to the sword.
He shot 62 percent from the field on his 37 attempts and picked up 21 points from the free-throw line - only missing two shots from the charity stripe.
Orlando Magic - 64
How often do you hear of somebody scoring 64 points in a game but going on to lose? It just doesn't normally happen, but that's what Jordan felt as he came up against a Scott Skiles and Shaquille O'Neal inspired Orlando Magic.
Try as he might, Jordan's 64 points still weren't enough in the 128-124 reverse.
Jordan's field goal rate was 27/49 and the most impressive element of the performance was that he only went to the free throw line 11 times, scoring nine points.
Boston Celtics - 63 (2OT)
Another great performance in a losing effort - Jordan did all he could to hold off the Boston Celtics but they just proved too strong on this playoff, double-overtime classic.
MJ took 41 shots, connecting with 22 of them to shoot over 50 percent and was a 90 percent shooter from the free throw line.
The loss left the Bulls 0-2 in the series but there was no doubt about who the star of the show was. Everything good about Chicago ran through the sophomore.
Atlanta Hawks - 61
Another high-scoring loss for his Airness, it became something of a common occurrence during his career. The 56-24 Hawks overcame the 40-40 Bulls as Jordan was one of the only positives for Chicago.
Charles Oakley was the only other player to score more than 15 points as MJ recorded a double-double in the defeat.
The shooting guard was 17-21 from the charity stripe and 22-38 from the field.
