Phoenix Suns vs. Milwaukee Bucks - NBA Finals Game 6 

Things started off really well for the Phoenix Suns in the 2021 NBA Finals. They won the first two games of the series, and appeared poised to win their first championship in franchise history. However, the series has done a complete 180 since those first two games. The Bucks have won three straight games, and now they sit just one win away from their first title in 50 years.

In Game 6 on Tuesday night, the Bucks will look to build off of the momentum that they have built over the past few games and close it out in front of their home crowd, while the Suns will aim to get back to winning like they did earlier in the series. 

Venue: Fiserv Forum, Milwaukee

The Chinese women's football team will play Brazil in the first group match of the Tokyo Olympic Games on Wednesday. The clash will be crucial for the 'Steel Roses' to advance to the second round, with a draw being the minimum goal. China has not beaten Brazil for 23 years.

Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony

The opening ceremony of the Olympic Games is usually a spectacular show, a chance for the host country to welcome the world and show off its culture on a grand international stage.

Zhu Ting and Zhao Shuai have been named as China's flag-bearers at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.

But this year's opening ceremony, which will mark the official start of the Tokyo Olympics, promises to be quite different.

As COVID-19 continues to spread, organizers have adjusted course with both the messaging and implementation of this summer's opening ceremony. With barely a one week to go, plenty of questions remain.

Date: July 23

Venue: National Stadium, Tokyo
