Throwback Thursday: Bulls and Knicks Fight During 1994 Eastern Conference Semis

Brian ChenSocial Media Staff December 18, 2014

The Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks will do battle on TNT on Thursday night.

It's only fitting that we look back at one of their most memorable moments.

During Game 3 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Knicks’ Derek Harper and the Bulls’ Jo Jo English got into it at the three-point line.

Many expected the fireworks to subside there. Instead, players from both teams made a beeline to the action.

Harper threw English to the ground as the fight extended into the first few rows of the crowd and, ironically, right in front of NBA Commissioner David Stern.

Harper would be suspended for the next two games, while English received a one-game suspension.
