The Golden State Warriors caught a loss over the weekend, as the defending champions walked into Houston and fell to the Rockets, 116-108. It wasn’t an especially stunning defeat or anything — the second-best team in the NBA hosted the best team in the NBA and won — but it still led to some having confidence in Houston’s ability to beat Golden State in the postseason. In fact, P.J. Tucker straight up said he believes the Rockets possess the “perfect team” to take down the Warriors.
The Rockets are really feeling themselves after Saturday night, when the team hosted Golden State in Houston and took down the defending champions, 116-108. In the aftermath of the win, Rockets forward P.J. Tucker praised his team, saying that he believes Houston has the “perfect team” to prevent the Warriors from making the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row. But in the eyes of Clint Capela, Tucker’s viewpoint of “being able to beat the Warriors” might be a bit off.
Kemba Walker does not want to be traded. The Charlotte Hornets’ All-Star point guard has made it clear that he would be devastated if the only team he’s played for during his NBA career shipped him elsewhere in an attempt to shed one of their bad contracts, as rumors that circulated on Friday indicated might happen. According to Ian Bagley of ESPN, the Hornets would like to hold discussions that would lead to Walker being sent to his hometown team.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
