Just got this press release from the NBA. And no, I am not making this up…

NBA CORRECTS STATISTICAL ERROR FROM CAVALIERS-KNICKS GAME

NEW  YORK,  Feb.  6,  2009  – The NBA announced today that a statistical error  was  made  during the Cleveland Cavaliers-New York Knicks game on Feb. 4 at Madison Square Garden.

Cavaliers  forward  LeBron James was incorrectly credited with a rebound with  39.3 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter that should have been awarded  to Cleveland forward Ben Wallace.  Due to the correction, James finished  Wednesday’s  game  with nine rebounds – one rebound short of a triple-double – while Wallace ended with two rebounds.

All  NBA  games  are  reviewed  to  ensure  the  accuracy  of  the  game statistics.
