Today in Sports History: June 20

In 1993, Chicago became the third NBA team to win three consecutive titles. Michael Jordan was named Finals MVP for the third time in a row after averaging a Finals record 41.0 points per game, along with 8.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists. He and Magic Johnson are the only players in league history to win at least three NBA Finals MVP awards. The Bulls cinched their 99-98 victory over the Phoenix Suns thanks to John Paxson’s three-pointer with 3.9 seconds left on the clock and Horace Grant’s block of a Kevin Johnson shot in the lane in the final second of the game.
