VIDEO: Michael Jordan Shrugged At His Own Domination Vs. Trail Blazers 20 Years Ago Sunday

The career of Michael Jordan would seem to feature a countless number of iconic moments, but if you had to rank the most indelible images of the Chicago Bulls legend's career, his shoulder shrug after hitting six first half three-pointers against the Portland Trail Blazers in the opening game of the 1992 NBA Finals would have to sit in the top five.

That game happened 20 years ago yesterday. We have video of MJ's domination, after the jump...

The Bulls would secure a 122-89 victory in the first game of the series, powered by Jordan's hot shooting. MJ broke the record for most points in a first half of a playoff game with 35. Jordan would finish with 39 points and 11 assists as the Bulls grabbed a 1-0 lead in the Finals.
