NBA On Friday: Schroder's Celtics Spoil LeBron Comeback: "I'm Looking Forward To Waking Up"

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost significantly in the comeback of LeBron James in Boston. The most important thing from Friday night in the NBA.

After recovering from an abdominal muscle injury, LeBron James returned to the floor in Boston on Friday evening (local time). Without the "King" the Lakers had stumbled extremely recently - but things only got better with him.

After a good start to the game, the Celtics took command in the second half and were able to rely on Dennis Schröder as well as Jayson Tatum (37 points) and Marcus Smart (22). The Brunswick was in the starting line-up for Jaylen Brown and contributed 21 points, six rebounds and six assists against his ex-team.

I'm more excited to see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow.

The Lakers lost in the end clearly 108: 130 and conceded their ninth defeat in the 17th game. "We definitely have to play better, no matter who is playing," said LeBron after his comeback, where he scored 23 points. "We have our system and of course we have to speed it up and get better so we can play at a high level no matter who's on the floor. There is no need to panic. But there should be a sense of urgency when there is we step onto the field."

When asked about his health, James said, "Physically, I felt okay and good enough to know that I could trust my body and play tonight. I'm more excited to see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow. It's a sign of whether I'm on the right track with my injury."

And what else was going on? The Phoenix Suns won against the Dallas Mavericks (again without Luka Doncic) their eleventh game in a row, but are still only second in the West because the Golden State Warriors retained the upper hand in Detroit even without the spared Stephen Curry.
