LeBron's Triple-Double Scratched

LEBRON James lost his latest triple-double when the National Basketball Association determined on Friday that one of his rebounds should have been credited to Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Ben Wallace.

James scored a season-high 52 points and had 11 assists on Wednesday in the 107-102 victory at New York. He was believed to have a triple-double when he grabbed what went down as a 10th rebound with less than two seconds left.

However, the league reviewed the game and ruled that a rebound given to James with 39.3 seconds remaining should have been credited to Wallace. The corrected statistics now have James with nine rebounds and Wallace with two.

Had the triple-double stood, it would have been the first 50-point game in a triple-double since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975.

James now remains with three triple-doubles this season and 20 for his career.
