With so much turnover across the NBA this offseason, there was plenty of mystery surrounding all 30 teams heading into the opening week of the season. While acknowledging the usual caveats of a small sample size, let's take stock of some surprises and disappointments across the association after Week 1 and decide on an early pecking order. 30.
Kyrie Irving was fined $25,000 by the league office on Sunday afternoon for a profane remark directed towards a Philadelphia fan during halftime of the Celtics-Sixers game at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night. Video of the incident made the rounds on social media after the game. In the recording, a fan could be hearing shouting 'Where's LeBron?' towards Irving prior to the lewd comment. Irving spoke to the league office on Saturday about the comments before the fine was issued Sunday.
PHILADELPHIA -- The Celtics were in a heap of trouble Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center in the third quarter against the 76ers. The offense was stalling, J.J. Redick and Jerryd Bayless were getting open looks and Brad Stevens seemingly had nowhere to turn for help on his inexperienced bench. Instead, he opted for a guy that wasn’t even a permanent member of the 15-man roster: Jabari Bird.
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".
