According to a post from ESPN:

MIAMI — The Miami Heat will be without Chris Bosh for Tuesday’s game against Toronto after the starting center remained in Miami to be with his wife for the birth of their second child.

Bosh was not available for the Heat’s practice Monday and did not travel with the team for its afternoon flight to Toronto. Bosh’s wife, Adrienne, delivered baby girl Dylan Bosh at 5:55 a.m. Monday morning and the couple posted photos of the newborn on social media.



Miley Cyrus Wigs Out For Halloween And Makes Us Miss Her Long Hair

Perhaps, like all of us, Miley Cyrus is missing her long locks — because this Halloween, she may don a mundane look.

On Tuesday night (Oct. 29), the singer gave fans a sneak peek of what may be in store for the upcoming holiday by tweeting a photo of herself in a long, golden brown wig. The look is strikingly similar of her previous ‘do (pre-Pixiegate, of course).

House Debt Ceiling, Government Shutdown Vote Dead: Report


GOP Leaders

A scheduled House Rules Committee hearing on the GOP leadership’s plan to reopen the government and avert the debt ceiling deadline was postponed Tuesday evening, signaling that support for the measure within the GOP caucus was in jeopardy.

The National Review‘s Robert Costa reported that a vote on the bill, proposed by House Republicans earlier in the day, would not take place Tuesday:

My sources tell me House Republicans will likely postpone tonight’s vote on their plan to end the fiscal impasse. “The votes aren’t there,” says a leadership aide. “We’ve been amending the bill all day, but we’ve been unable to get people around this strategy.”

This development leaves Speaker John Boehner with few options as Thursday’s debt-ceiling deadline nears, and it throws the action back toward the Senate, which has been working on a bipartisan package.

LeBron to guard Robinson?

MIAMI — LeBron James said it wouldn’t be a surprise if he guarded Nate Robinson in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Wednesday after Robinson scored a game-high 27 points in the Bulls’ Game 1 win.


“It wouldn’t be a surprise if I matched up with him,” James said Tuesday. “But I’ll take the challenge on [defense].”

Part of the challenge for the 6-foot-8, 250-pound James will be keeping up with the 5-9, 180-pound Robinson, but it wouldn’t be the first time James has checked a Bulls point guard. After the Bulls won Game 1 of the 2011 Eastern Conference finals, James guarded Derrick Rose and the Heat won four straight.

“Nate is a scorer, man,” Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. “We got to do a better job of contesting his shots, but Nate’s going to score the basketball because he’s going to shoot. We can’t worry about that. I think there’s other things that we have to worry about more than Nate. We’ve seen it — when Nate gets on a roll, there’s not many guys in the league that can get hotter than Nate that make shots.

“I think we got to do a better job of contesting his shots. When he gets in the paint, do a better job of making sure that we jump and contest his shots, but besides that he’s going to make some tough shots.”

Aside from Robinson’s performance, the Bulls player whom the Heat stars found themselves talking about most on Tuesday was Jimmy Butler. The Marquette alum has caught the Heat’s attention after dropping in 21 points and grabbing 14 rebounds Monday. He also spent most of the night chasing around James and played all 48 minutes for the third game in a row.

“I think it’s very impressive for him to be able to do it,” James said of all Butler’s minutes.

Wade agreed.

“He’s in shape,” said Wade, who also attended Marquette. “The guy is in shape, and to be able to play that many minutes in a row, obviously a lot of guys can’t do that. And still to be aggressive on the offensive end and defensively to be able to guard different guys, he’s special in that sense. That’s why Marquette chose him.”

James complimented the Bulls’ defensive system while giving Butler some praise.

“I think Jimmy’s a good solid defender,” James said. “But I think it’s the system that’s built around him and the guys around him that makes you a really good defender. No matter how good you are individually, if you don’t have guys behind you that’s talking and helping you, then it doesn’t matter. And that goes into my series with Boston and Tony Allen. He had Kevin Garnett and those guys behind him that’s giving a lot of communication. The same with Tayshaun Prince in Detroit; he had Rasheed Wallace and Ben Wallace and now with Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler, you have Joakim Noah and those guys behind him.


“So you can be the greatest individual defender, but if you don’t have a line behind you and a system behind you, then you can get exploited. I think he’s good on the ball, he pays attention to detail, and it helps that he has a really good defensive system behind him.”

Despite the results in Game 1, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau thinks the Bulls have to get better.

“I thought they missed some shots early that they normally make, so we have to be ready right from the start and you have to play 48 minutes against them,” he said. “We have to be aggressive at both ends of the floor. I thought offensively in the second half we were pretty good, but we have to do that from the start of the game.”
