The triple-double that LeBron James recorded Monday night has been erased.
Instead of the 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists he apparently had in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, he now officially had 32 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.
That’s not bad, but it’s not a triple double.
The change came after a review of the game by the NBA revealed that James was credited with one rebound and one assist he should not have had.
The NBA reviews statistics from all games.
Late in the third quarter, James got a defensive rebound and tipped it to teammate Tristan Thompson, who passed it ahead to Kyrie Irving, who drove the rest of the way for a layup.
James was officially credited with an assist on that play at the time. The NBA recognized that was a mistake, and took that assist away.
In the fourth quarter James was credited with an offensive rebound that should have been credited to Mike Miller.
