WASHINGTON — Michael Jordan is well rested, relatively healthy, has been unstoppable for the last two games and is going for 30,000 points — against his old team, the Chicago Bulls on Friday in the MCI Center.

After putting up 51 points against Charlotte and 45 on New Year's Eve against New Jersey, Jordan indicated more of the same is on the way. The tendinitis in his knee is on the wane, allowing him to resume daily weightlifting and regain strength in his legs for better lift on his jumpers and quicker drives to the basket.

Jordan won six titles in 13 years with the Bulls and will make his first appearance in Chicago Jan. 19.
