It was 90s night at the United Center Friday, and that means busting out old pictures of current Bulls players.

This throwback was particularly fitting. Check out a young Doug McDermott playing with a Michael Jordan Space Jam doll.

The movie hit theaters in November of 1996, right in the midst of the Bulls’ second three-peat.

Maybe the themed night lit a fire under the current Bulls. Chicago entered Friday riding a five-game losing streak but beat second-place Toronto 116-106, thanks in part to McDermott, whohad a career-high 30 points in 30 minutes off the bench. It was his first 30-point game since his senior season at Creighton.
