But nearly all of the highlights happened outside of regulation in Wednesday's 119-115 win against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. When Knicks great Charles Oakley wasn't getting thrown out and arrested in the stands, Jordan was getting the basketball stuck in the Jumbotron.
Before the game, Jordan was playing some defense in warm-ups. He stole the ball from his opponent and blindly tossed it to the sky with his right hand. But it never came down. Jordan looked up, amazed that it was stuck in the giant television.
The two-time All-Star had 28 points and 15 rebounds in the win. He was 12-of-14 from the floor. Jordan, who has a player option in 2018, is averaging 12.3 points per game. He is leading the NBA with a .698 field goal percentage.
