LeBron posts triple-double as Lakers repel Grizzlies

LOS ANGELES – LeBron James returned from a one-game absence to post a 23-point triple-double on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time) and lead the Los Angeles Lakers to a 136-124 NBA victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.

James sat out the Lakers' come-from-behind double-overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday with a sore left ankle.

Anthony Davis, who played nearly 52 minutes on Tuesday, was sidelined with a hyperextended left knee. But Rui Hachimura provided a big lift, drilling seven of eight 3-point attempts on the way to 32 points with 10 rebounds to help the Lakers win their fifth straight, as they vie to work their way out of the play-in tournament and straight into the playoffs.

Curry was left shaking his head when Green was tossed, receiving two quick technical fouls for heatedly arguing a foul call.

It was the fourth ejection of the season for Green, who missed 16 games after he was suspended in December for swinging an arm into the head of Suns center Jusuf Nurkic.

Curry was clearly frustrated at the incident, shaking his head and pulling his jersey over his face.

But the Warriors, who maintained their tenuous hold on the final play-in berth in the Western Conference, regrouped to finish the first quarter with a 27-11 lead they wouldn't relinquish.

"Too bad," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Green's ejection. "It
