If you can name the Mavericks starter who has a .500 record when he's in the lineup at the jump ball this season, you clearly have had too much time off lately. That would be Maxi Kleber, the rookie from Dirk Nowitzki's hometown of Wurzburg, Germany, who has started the past four games as the Mavericks have gone 2-2, including wins in two of the past three. OK, it's a small claim to fame.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)If ever someone received a clear picture of what it's like to be the new go-to guy, Harrison Barnes got it this week. This is the way it goes for somebody who now clearly is the Mavericks' No. 1 option when they desperately need a basket.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- For 24 minutes Wednesday, the Mavericks were the turkey, head resting on the chopping block, unable to put up any resistance. Then, they took the axe away from the Memphis Grizzlies and started hacking back. And Harrison Barnes had the last swing.
Harrison Barnes on taking over for Dirk Nowitzki as go-to guy: “I said when I very first signed here that this is Dirk’s franchise until the day he retires for everything he’s done. Without him, I wouldn’t be here."
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".
