What started as a relatively routine skirmish between players soon extended into a full-blown fracas that involved spectators and went down in NBA lore.

The second episode, Untold: Deal with the Devil, told the story of Christy Martin, a bonafide star of women's boxing, who narrowly avoided death at the hands of her former husband and coach, James Martin.

Next up on August 24 is Untold: Caitlyn Jenner, which charts Jenner's path from decathlon Olympic champion in 1976 to media personality and LGBTQ advocate.

The documentary delves into Jenner's acceptance of her own identity, her decision to transition and the relationship with her children.

Episode 4, which will air on August 31, explores the story of the Trashers, a UHL ice hockey based in Danbury, Connecticut and owned by Jimmy Galante, a trash mogul with ties to organized crime.

Galante installed his 17-year-old son A.J.—Galante and his family allegedly were the basis for The Sopranos—as the general manager presiding over a team of misfits, which was eventually shut down by the FBI.

The series finale, Untold: Breaking Point, tells the story of former tennis star Mardy Fish and his struggles with mental health.

In 2012, Fish abandoned a quarterfinal tie against Roger Federer at the U.S. Open and eventually announced a shock retirement, despite being the No. 1 ranked American on the ATP Tour.

Untold: Malice at the Palace and Untold: Deal with the Devil are both available to stream on Netflix now.
