Denver Nuggets defeat LA Lakers 102-99. Andrew Bynum before the game said, "Close-out games are actually kind of easy." Easy enough for Bynum since he all but disappeared getting outplayed by JaVale McGee. McGee had 21 points and 14 rebounds while Bynum had 16 points and 11 rebounds. Kobe Bryant did all he could with 43 points, but a last second three just rimmed out giving the Nuggets the Game 5 win.

Minnesota Twins defeat LA Angels 5-0. Dan Haren couldn't equal the feats of his teammate Jered Weaver. All five runs came off Haren in the 3 2/3 innings he pitched.

Albert Pujols went 0-for-4 dropping his batting average to .190.
