After missing the past 17 games, LeBron James returns to the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time since Christmas Day for their matchup vs. the LA Clippers.

James flirted with a triple-double in the Lakers‘ 123-120 victory over their in-city rivals, finishing with 24 points on 9-of-22 shooting, 14 rebounds and nine assists.

The Clippers are still eighth in the West (28-24), but the Lakers are close (27-25).
