Gloria James, mother of Heat star LeBron James, was released from jail Thursday after being arrested early in the morning outside a Miami hotel for allegedly assaulting a valet. Gloria, who pleaded no contest to DUI in 2006, had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and had bloodshot eyes when officers arrived on the scene at 4:47 a.m. Thursday, police said. The valet and witnesses told police that he brought the car to the front of the hotel but turned it off after waiting 30 minutes for Gloria. When she walked out to the ramp, she started screaming profanities when she didn't immediately see her car and then slapped the valet.
"It's a sensitive subject," LeBron said after the Heat practiced Thursday afternoon. "It's a personal matter. It's being taken care of."

Bulls guard Derrick Rose finished with 30 points, and the Celtics lost for the third time in the last four games on the road, falling 97-81 in Chicago on Thursday night.
Paul Pierce led Boston with 15 points as the Bulls' magic number for clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race dwindled to one. Chicago, which won for the 17th time in the last 19 games, also got 23 points from Luol Deng in the victory.
The Celtics fell behind the Bulls early and never recovered, as Rose powered Chicago to an early lead. The Bulls never trailed after Deng hit a running jumper early in the third quarter that made it 50-49. Kevin Garnett (10 points, 10 rebounds) and Jeff Green (10 points) were the only other Celtics in double digits.

CLEVELAND -- Daniel Bard admitted that Asdrubal Cabrera's squeeze bunt with one out in the eighth inning, which scored Adam Everett with the eventual game-winning run in the Indians' 1-0 win over the Red Sox, took him completely by surprise.
"I didn't see it coming at all," the reliever said. Later Bard added, "He didn’t square about the first three pitches. I don’t know why he would there."
Red Sox manager Terry Francona, on the other hand, said he wasn't totally take off guard by the Indians' strategy.
“No," he said when asked if the move was a surprise. "If we elect to pitch out and we don’t get the exact pitch, now we’ve got first and third and we’re in worse shape. No, you’ve got to figure at some point they might try it.”
Bard, who threw a 97 mph on the outside edge to Cabrera on the pitch in question, lamented walking the Indians' No. 9 hitter,...
CLEVELAND -- The tone in the Red Sox' clubhouse was clearly one of frustration following a 1-0 loss to the Indians Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field. The defeat moved the Sox to 0-6, the franchise's worst start since 1945, when the Sox began the season 0-8.
"I’m frustrated. We all went to bed at 3 o’clock. We don’t just put our head on the pillow at 11:30 and go to sleep and say everything’s great. We’ve got 15 All-Stars or whatever the hell we’ve got on this team. That’s not how it is, man," Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. "This is our lives. We’re going to get home right now and my wife’s going to look at me and say, '[Expletive], you’re 0-6. You guys stink.' We all bring this [expletive] home with us, man. We care. We’ll figure it out. We have to. We don’t want to let anyone down. That’s it."
Despite returning home without a win,...
CLEVELAND -- Darnell McDonald explained after the Red Sox' 1-0 loss to the Indians Thursday afternoon that his intention in rounding second on the final play of the game was to try to be "aggressive" with the Sox trailing by a run in the ninth inning.
McDonald made the final out when he overran second base on J.D. Drew's grounder, which deflected off Indians reliever Chris Perez enough that Drew would have been safe. Third baseman Adam Everett scooped up the grounder, throwing it to second baseman Orlando Cabrera fast enough to catch the Sox' pinch-runner as he attempted to dive back into second.
"I'm trying to be aggressive. I'm trying to make them make the throw, lost my footing out there and just got caught in no-man's land. I was just trying to be aggressive and make them make the throw to first base," McDonald explained.
"It might have been wet. I'm not even sure. I lost my footing, tried to get back,...
