Nearing his second retirement, the 35-year-old legend had begun to show he was getting a little too old to dominate night in and night out for 82 games of a regular season. The 'Bad Boy' Pistons were once all over Jordan, keeping him away from the NBA Finals by eliminating the Bulls three years in a row early in Jordan's career.

While the stakes weren't quite as high for this regular season game, Detroit still went out of their way to stop the seemingly unstoppable.

Off, in every aspect of his usually perfect game, Jordan just couldn't find it in him to help his side overcome the Pistons, shooting 7 from 25 from the field at 28% and missing all three of his three-point attempts while only going 5 from 10 from the charity strike.
