Lebron James wrote down 23 points on his return with Los angeles lakers after eight games injured, but could not avoid the resounding defeat 130-108 before the Boston Celtics from an inspired Jayson Tatum.

The Los Angeles team, who lost five of the games without their star, was dominated at the TD Garden by dynamic Celtics led by Tatum, who came to 37 points and 11 rebounds.

James was shown recovered from his abdominal sprain by playing 32 minutes and achieving 23 points (10/16 in field goals), 6 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.

I felt ‘ok’“, said the forward afterwards, to meet 37 years in December. “Obviously, being away for two and a half weeks, I felt like a rookie (…) But I was excited“.

Pvot Anthony Davis seconded ‘King James’ with 31 points and 6 rebounds but the rest of the Lakers, including his third figure, Russell westbrook (12 points), he was not able to contain the offense of the Celtics.

Tatum, with serious inefficiency problems this season, seems to have stepped on the accelerator with two consecutive games above 30 points.

By his side, Marcus Smart and Dennis Schrder scored 22 and 21 points to compensate for the drop in Jaylen brown, who still has no return date for his hamstring problem.

With this victory in the duel between the NBA’s most winning franchises, the Celtics remain in ninth place in the Eastern Conference (8-8), the same place as the Lakers in the West (8-9).
