The Cavaliers are currently 27-18 and sit in the third spot in the Eastern Conference standings. They’re just one game ahead of the Heat and two games ahead of the Wizards, but they’re also just two games behind the Raptors and six games behind the Celtics for the top spot. So they’re not in that bad of shape in the grand scheme of things. But the Cavaliers have struggled mightily since the start of January.
The NBA has been filled with unexpected beefs this season. From LeBron James vs. Enes Kanter to DeMarcus Cousins vs. Kevin Durant to Trevor Ariza vs. Austin Rivers, a whole bunch of players have gone at it—and the season is still barely half over. But John Wall vs. J.J. Barea? Yeah, we definitely can’t say we saw that one coming. The Wizards and Mavericks squared off in Dallas Monday night in what seemed like it would be a pretty forgettable matchup.
In early January, about a week after teasing his involvement in the Black Panther soundtrack in the music video for his Damn song, "Love," Kendrick Lamar revealed he would, in fact, be playing a prominent role in the soundtrack to the Marvel movie. Kendrick confirmed he would be producing Black Panther: The Album alongside Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith. Kendrick also teamed up with SZA to release the first single, "All the Stars," from the project.
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".
