As he was during his second three-peat run with the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan was a savvy veteran who knew how to play efficiently during his two-year stint in Washington. Yet none of his clutch tendencies were sacrificed to time. His ability to decide games remained ageless, as he demonstrated on February 15, 2002 against the Phoenix Suns.
With the Wizards down one with just over 5 seconds left all eyes were on number 23. He popped out to take the inbounds, maneuvered to the wing, extended over Suns top defender Shawn Marion, and boom. MJ finished with 22 points, and Wiz got the W.
Watch the clip below, including Stephon Marbury’s miffed reaction. (What did he expect, it’s MJ!)
