MIAMI (AP) - The Miami Heat will break from tradition and not have anyone brought in to sing the national anthem before Game 2 of their Eastern Conference playoff series with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

Instead, the Heat are encouraging fans to sing it themselves.

The announcement was made by the Heat less than one day following the announcement that Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan. The Heat have honored soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan at home games for several seasons, and say Tuesday’s game will include an enhanced military tribute.
