We've got a lot to prep for on yet another big Wednesday slate. As usual, this stands out in contrast to the Tuesday so let's not waste any more time and get straight to business. Point guard and small forward immediately jump out as spots I want to pay up for the big guns on the slate, while shooting guard and center are places where I feel I can find value. I'll be building my teams with core pieces of John Wall, Kawhi Leonard, and Zach LaVine.
We're back with another Tuesday edition of FanDuel lineup picks for the NBA slate, and to no one's surprise it's a small slate. There are only four games, which gives the opportunity to do a bit more of a deep dive on each game and position. The good news is there should be plenty of offense to go around. At first glance, Portland and Minnesota stand out as the easy teams to target on the slate.
Tonight's slate is a bit of mess due to uncertain injury situations, most notable being with Philadelphia and Cleveland. The return of Kawhi Leonard makes most Spurs plays hands off because there is little certainty as to what the rotation/usage will look like with his return. The Sacramento and Denver rotations are always changing as well, so we're in for a fun night. A few teams do stand out however, as Detroit has an implied team total nearly four points over their season average.
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".
