The New Orleans Pelicans have made an incredible run to get into playoff position in the crowded Western Conference despite a season-ending injury to DeMarcus Cousins in late January. That's largely due to Anthony Davis, who has been playing some of the best basketball in the league since Cousins' injury. His strong play has many campaigning for Davis to at least be considered for this year's NBA MVP award -- and he faced the leading candidate, Rockets guard James Harden, on Saturday.
Well you either made a lot of money or lost a lot of money during the first round of the NCAA Tournament. We're going to go ahead and guess you probably didn't win much. But never fear, the second round is here to give you a whole new chance to take home some cash. The process of filling out a bracket is always a great deal of fun, but that doesn't mean you can't kick it up a notch by picking games against the spread. In order to do that, you have to know the point spreads.
It's been a frustrating season for the Phoenix Suns, to say the least, and in Thursday's 116-88 loss to the Utah Jazz, it appears that Jared Dudley and Marquese Chriss let it get the best of them. In the third quarter, Chriss fell to the ground on a play where no foul was called. Dudley apparently took exception and committed a hard foul on Jazz guard Ricky Rubio. When Rubio got up to defend himself, Chriss came over and shoved Rubio into the referee. Then the expected chaos ensued.
totally disagree with this ... Geno's worried about winning a title, gotta keep his players sharp ... are they just supposed to sit on the ball after they go up by 40 in the first quarter? Would St. Francis feel better if they lost by 60 instead of 88? https://twitter.com/usatodaysports/status/975104517799927808
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".
