NBA Finals Flashback: Michael Jordan Switches Hands in the Middle of Layup

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJune 8, 2014

The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs are set to square off in Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals on Sunday night, so it's the perfect time to check out one of the greatest moments that a Game 2 has ever produced.

Back in the 1991 NBA Finals, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls were looking to knock off the Los Angeles Lakers for their first championship. After falling in Game 1, the Bulls, led by Jordan, took control of the series in Game 2.

The defining moment of Game 2 came from none other than Jordan. On a drive to the basket, Jordan went to dunk the ball with his right hand but ended up switching the ball to his left hand for the layup. The incredible play got Chicago Stadium rocking and left coach Phil Jackson just shaking his head.

Jordan finished Game 2 with 33 points and 13 assists as he led the Bulls to a 107-86 victory.

Chicago won the series in five games, and the rest is history.
