This Day in Sports History - 6/13/1993

Chicago comes back from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime. The Suns outscore the Bulls 15 - 7 in the third OT. Michael Jordan collects 44 points, but hits only 9 of 27 shots after halftime. Guard Dan Majerle leads the Suns' attack with 28 points, including six three-pointers. It is the second triple overtime in NBA Finals history. The first was between the Suns and Celtics in Boston in Game 5 in 1976, which the Celtics won, 128 - 126.
