After the finale of The Last Dance docuseries, ESPN announced the upcoming release of Game 6: The Movie. The unprecedented cinematic production is an in-depth look at Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals, which saw the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz go head to head in one of the most iconic games in NBA history.
