(CBS) With the Blackhawks’ elimination Sunday night, there’s no postseason intrigue in Chicago this June. But 22 years ago, there was plenty of it, in the form of the Bulls chasing their second championship during their 1990s dynasty.

And exactly 22 years ago today, Michael Jordan gave us one of his signature moments: “The Shrug.” His palms-up, “I can’t believe this either” look came after he drilled six first-half 3-pointers to lead Chicago to a 122-89 trouncing of Portland in Game 1 of the 1992 NBA Finals.

Jordan scored 39 points in the game, including a record 35 in the first half. Jordan’s six 3-pointers tied the record for the most treys made in an NBA Finals game.

You can watch the video highlights below. The first is just “The Shrug” while the second is a longer edit of Jordan’s heroics that night.
