LeBron James made his return for the Lakers after missing five games with a left adductor strain. The four-time NBA champion helped his team defeat the Spurs on the road (105-94).
During 33 minutes on the court James amassed 21 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals. However, he also turned the ball over 9 times. Lakers head coach Darvin Ham thought the superstar did great all things considered.
“I thought he was phenomenal,” Ham said. “He looked great, he was moving great. Obviously, there’s going to be some rust there four games out. Really haven’t had a chance to practice and do much in that regard. I thought he looked great.
“Again, that’s Bron, so he’ll correct his mistakes. He’ll definitely self-correct. He came out, asked after the game how did it feel, he said ‘Good. Really really good.’ That’s a great sign.”
