LOS ANGELES – It wasn’t about the progress Zach LaVine made in practice. Not when the practice is a “light one’’ like Monday’s. It was about the milestone. LaVine ended the rehabilitation journey when his Los Angeles-based surgeon cleared him and his once-torn left anterior cruciate ligament for full contact on Monday morning, and is all set to start a new journey. One that he hopes will have him making his Bulls debut come mid-December. “It should be,’’ LaVine said of that December timetable.
PHOENIX – During one training camp media gathering in October, the Bulls’ Gar Forman strolled through the scrum and asked why there weren’t more preseason stories written about Paul Zipser. Whether it was out of curiosity or simply Forman filling out an agenda of tooting his own horn for grabbing a then-potential starter in the second round [48th overall] of the 2016 draft was unclear, but bet on the latter. It’s safe to say that Forman isn’t looking to push Zipser stories these days.
Welcome to Tanking 101 in which the Bulls were able to see their young key foundation pieces continue to shine, but make sure they still hold more lottery ping-pong balls than a fellow rebuilding team like the Phoenix Suns. Like it or not that’s what Sunday’s 113-105 loss at the Talking Stick Resort was all about in the big picture. Kris Dunn was good, and Lauri Markkanen was great, scoring a career-high 26 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Not much to see, or at least much that mattered.
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".
