The Cleveland Cavaliers lost 148-124 on Saturday to the Oklahoma City Thunder. That was the latest of several disappointing performances during the last 10 games. In this calendar year, the Cavs have lopsided loses against the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, Toronto Raptors and Thunder. The Cavs have been to the NBA Finals for the past three seasons and gets their opponents best shot. The Cavs have their eyes set on defeating the Golden State Warriors in June.
Currently, the Cleveland Cavaliers are riding a league high 11-game winning streak. After a tumultuous start to the season, it appears things are headed in the right direction. On November 9 at Houston, even in defeat, the team was turning a corner. Since then, the Cavs have the fourth best record in the league. It also has the fourth best offensive rating. It also has reestablished itself as an elite 3-point shooting team.
If you have paid close enough attention this season, you would notice that LeBron James is making threes. In fact, LeBron is converting on 42.7% of attempts from distance. That begs the question, has LeBron evolved again as a player? As Michael Jordan aged and lost a little athleticism, MJ became more reliant on his fade away jump shot. Other great players have been documented as using the off-season time to add new pieces to their repertoire.
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".
