The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is back on the court.

But not even Kobe Bryant could save his team from losing to the Toronto Raptors.

Amir Johnson scored a career-high 32 points in leading visiting Toronto to a 106-94 win to stop a five-game losing streak.

Bryant in his 18th season and the NBA’s fourth-leading scorer in history, had not played since rupturing his Achilles tendon in April against the Golden State Warriors.

He scored nine points, grabbed eight rebounds, dished out four assists ans turned the ball over eight times in 28 minutes of action.

The Cleveland Cavaliers blew a 17-point lead, the game and lost All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving in a 100-96 decision to the Toronto Raptors.

The 20-year-old Irving left the game with a bruised left shoulder late in the third quarter. X-rays were negative and he will have further tests in the next few days.

The Cavaliers locker room was kept closed for more than 20 minutes after the game while head coach Byron Scott let the team know he is tired of them blowing games in the 3rd quarter.

Amir Johnson scored 17 points and tied a career high with 16 rebounds for the Raptors.

Rookie Dion Waiters scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter for Cleveland.

The Raptors, showing signs of fatigue throughout the game from playing their fourth game in five nights and were without the services of Andrea Bargnani and Amir Johnson, trailed from the opening tap, due to poor shooting and bad defense, fell behind by 22 points in the first half.

The Cavaliers had a nice distribution of points with Baron Davis scoring 19 and Ramon Sessions adding 15.

The crowd of 14,886 saw Jerryd Bayless score 28 points to lead the Raptors, followed by DeMar De Roazan with 19, Reggie Evans had a season-high 15 points and 13 rebounds and Sonny Weems chipped in with 17 points.
