Every game-winning buzzer-beater of Michael Jordan's NBA career

There isn't one person in NBA history who has made more game-winners at the buzzer than Michael Jordan.

Not one.

According to Basketball Reference, Jordan made a total of nine game-winning buzzer-beaters in his Hall of Fame career, which is the most in NBA history. Kobe Bryant and Joe Johnson rank second with eight each, followed by LeBron James and Paul Piece with seven each.

All nine of Jordan's game-winning buzzer-beaters came outside of the paint and only two of them were assisted. Once again, Jordan leads the way in that regard, as his seven unassisted game-winning buzzer-beaters are tied with Johnson for the most all-time.

With "The Last Dance" now in full swing, let's take a trip down memory lane and relive each one of Jordan's game-winning buzzer-beaters in chronological order.

1. May 7, 1989 - Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Result: Bulls 101, Cavaliers 100

Jordan's line: 44 points (17-32 FG, 1-1 3PT, 9-13 FT)

The most famous shot on this list.

Jordan's shot over Cavaliers shooting guard Craig Ehlo, which is one of only two game-winning buzzer-beaters in a winner-take-all game, made the quarterfinals of our greatest shots in NBA playoff history bracket.

2. Nov. 13, 1990 - Chicago Bulls vs. Utah Jazz

Result: Bulls 84, Jazz 82

Jordan's line: 29 points (10-22 FG, 1-1 3PT, 8-10 FT)

While it would be years until the Bulls and Jazz would meet in the Finals, Jordan planted the seeds of what was to come with a game-winner against the Jazz in the early part of the 1990-91 season.

3. Nov. 11, 1992 - Chicago Bulls vs. Detroit Pistons

Result: Bulls 98, Pistons 86

Jordan's line: 37 points (13-24 FG, 3-3 3PT, 8-10 FT)

This wasn't the same Pistons team that gave Jordan and the Bulls trouble during the late 1980s, but there were still many familiar faces on the roster, such as Joe Dumars, Isiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer and Dennis Rodman.

This was the first game-winning buzzer-beater from the 3-point line for Jordan.

4. May 17, 1993 - Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Result: Bulls 103, Cavaliers 101

Jordan's line: 31 points (11-24 FG, 2-2 3PT, 7-9 FT)

As if one series-clinching game-winning buzzer-beater wasn't enough, Jordan completed a series sweep over the Cavaliers in the second round of the 1993 NBA Playoffs with a game-winning buzzer-beater in Game 4.

5. March 25, 1995 - Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks

Result: Bulls 99, Hawks 98

Jordan's line: 32 points (14-26 FG, 0-1 3PT, 4-4 FT)

In only his fourth game back from his first retirement, Jordan led the Bulls to a hard-fought win over the Hawks with 32 points and the game-winning shot while wearing No. 45, not his usual No. 23.

6. Feb. 11, 1997 - Chicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Hornets

Result: Bulls 103, Hornets 100

Jordan's line: 43 points (16-24 FG, 1-2 3PT, 10-14 FT)

This is one of the two buzzer-beating game-winners Jordan was assisted on, but by no means was it an easy shot.

7. June 1, 1997 - Chicago Bulls vs. Utah Jazz

Result: Bulls 84, Jazz 82

Jordan's line: 31 points (13-27 FG, 0-0 3PT, 5-7 FT)

Jordan helped the Bulls deliver the first punch in the 1997 NBA Finals by hitting the game-winner in Game 1 of the series.

The Bulls would go on to win in six games to earn the second of three straight titles.

8. Feb 13, 1998 - Chicago Bulls vs. Atlanta Hawks

Result: Bulls 112, Hawks 110

Jordan's line: 37 points (14-22 FG, 0-1 3PT, 9-12 FT)

This would be Jordan's final game-winning buzzer-beater in a Bulls uniform, coming in the "Last Dance" season.

9. Jan. 31, 2002 - Washington Wizards vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Result: Wizards 93, Cavaliers 92

Jordan's line: 26 points (11-27 FT, 0-1 3PT, 4-4 FT)

Even when he was on the Wizards, the Cavaliers had a way of bringing the best out of Jordan.

Jordan was 38-years-old when he hit the final game-winning buzzer-beater of his career.

"Jordan does it to Cleveland again! Jordan is the Cavalier killer!"
