LeBron James helped the Los Angeles Lakers beat the San Antonio Spurs 105-94 on his return from a five-game injury lay-off. 

James, sidelined by an adductor strain since 9 November, scored 21 points as the Lakers won their first away game of the season.

James, 37, also made eight rebounds, five assists and three steals. 

“He was moving great,” said Lakers coach Darvin Ham. “Obviously there’s going to be some rust there, but I thought he looked great.”

Anthony Davis scored 25 points for the Lakers as the Spurs suffered a seventh consecutive defeat.
