Lebron James returned to the Lakers lineup on Thursday and led the Lakeshow to a 123-120 overtime victory over the Clippers at the Staples Center. James played 40 minutes and scored 24 points while adding 14 rebounds and 9 assists. James had missed the last 17 games with a groin injury with the Lakers going just 6-11 in his absence. Lebron was a surprise starter and that was reflected in an eight point line move with the Clippers opening as -5.5 point home favorites with the Lakers moving to -2.5 point road chalk after it was announced the James would play.
