In the 1998 Eastern Conference finals, the Indiana Pacers took the Bulls to their only seven-game playoff series during their championship runs. The Bulls survived with an 88-83 victory despite Jordan finishing with 25 points on 9-of-25 shooting and going scoreless for the last seven minutes. The Bulls' defense clamped down late, holding the Pacers scoreless over the final 2:05 to ensure a sixth trip to the NBA Finals in eight years.
