Milwaukee Bucks will battle with Phoenix Suns in the National Basketball Association (NBA) Finals Game Six at the Fiserv Forum on July 21.
The Bucks are currently leading the series 3-2 after securing a 123-119 win over the Suns in Game Five which took place at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, the USA on July 18.
Another win for the Bucks in Game Six will see them being crowned 2021 NBA champions - winning the series 4-2 and there won't be a need for Game Seven.

The Bucks became the first team in the series to win on the road following their Game Five victory with Bucks stars Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton combining for 88 points.
Therefore, they became the fifth trio to each score 25 points on 50% shooting in a single Finals game.
They are also the first to accomplish the feat since Los Angeles Lakers' Abdul-Jabbar (36 points), James Worthy (33), and Magic Johnson (26) in 1985.
Suns star Chris Paul ended the game with 21 points and 11 assists, and his teammate Deandre Ayton finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

While Suns' Devin Booker became the first player in the Finals to score at least 40 in consecutive games and lose both.
Monty Williams, the Suns' coach, says it is imperative for his side to win Game Six in order for the Bucks to travel to Footprint Center, Phoenix for Game Seven. 
“We’ve got to win one game to put them back on the plane. That’s it,” Williams said ahead of Game Six.
“And you have to have that determination that you’re willing to do whatever it takes to put them back on the plane.”
