1990 – In a 93-74 Detroit Pistons victory over the Chicago Bulls in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Pistons moved on to the franchise’s third consecutive NBA Finals. In the contest, Detroit point guard Isiah Thomas put up a game-high 21 points and eight assists.

The Pistons ultimately won their second consecutive championship, a feat that the 2012-13 Miami Heat accomplished last season. Miami recently clinched its fourth straight NBA Finals appearance and hopes to make three consecutive championships like the Los Angeles Lakers did in the early 2000’s.
