NBA: Westbrook loses 10th triple double on video review

New York: NBA scoring leader Russell Westbrook lost his statistical triple double from Oklahoma City`s weekend victory over Miami after the league made a scoring change Tuesday following a video review.

What would have been the 10th game of the season in which Westbrook achieved double-digit numbers in points, assists and rebounds was instead reduced to 12 points, 17 assists and nine rebounds after the subtraction of a Sunday rebound.

The Thunder star guard is averaging a league-best 27.5 points a game, just ahead of Houston`s James Harden, and Oklahoma City has a grip on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

At 40-30, the Thunder are 2 1/2 games in front of Phoenix and three games ahead of New Orleans in the fight for the final West playoff position.
