EL SEGUNDO – His shooting has been among the worst in the league, he has been bullied by bigger and more experienced point guards and found himself on the bench late in games. So when Lonzo Ball showed up to Friday’s shoot around with his trademark hair chopped off, more than a few eyebrows were raised. “Just time to restart,” said Ball, who will start Friday against the Phoenix Suns.
LOS ANGELES — The night Larry Nance Jr. broke his hand, he sat in front of his locker in Portland, imagining the worst. Little more than two weeks later, he appears to be on the cusp of a return to the court. “My spirits are much higher for sure,” said Nance, whose cast was removed on Nov. 14, 11 days after he underwent surgery to repair a fractured second metacarpal in his left hand.
LOS ANGELES – After playing three times in the first month of the season, the Lakers and Phoenix Suns will have three months apart to think about their feelings. On Friday, the latest installment in a series of near-brawls came with 3:17 left in a 122-113 Suns victory. Phoenix led by nine when the Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope continued to harass point guard Tyler Ulis after a timeout had been called. Ulis and Caldwell-Pope started shoving and the well-rehearsed choreography began again.
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".
