LOS ANGELES — The Denver Nuggets committed a boatload of turnovers and sputtered down the stretch in a key 109-104 loss to the Clippers Wednesday night to drop to ninth place in the Western Conference at 23-22. Here are seven takeaways from the defeat:1. Taking this outside. Denver shot 43.3 percent from the floor and 5-of-25 from 3-point distance. A team-high eight long balls (with one make) were taken by the Nikola Jokic, who went 7-of-18 from the floor overall to finish with 18 points.
LOS ANGELES — Wearing a grey designer suit, Danilo Gallinari stopped in front of the Nuggets’ locker room at Staples Center and wrapped head of team security Bobby Simmons in a pseudo headlock. The playful greeting illustrated six years of relationships that cannot be broken by a summer sign-and-trade. Wednesday’s matchup between Denver and the Clippers also doubled as Gallinari’s first chance to reunite with his former team, following an offseason departure he described as amicable.
Spotlight on Devin Booker: The 21-year-old guard is coming off another outstanding individual performance, dropping 43 points — 22 in the fourth quarter — to go along with eight assists, six rebounds and two steals in Tuesday’s 118-111 loss at Portland. Complementing jumpers with impressive finishes at the rim, Booker is averaging 25.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game in his third NBA season.
Michael Malone says he’s “not married” to the Jokic-Plumlee frontcourt and admits he may have gotten carried away with it after it wins (and great D) over Portland, Golden State, Utah wins in December. Hinted that Lyles or Chandler could start tonight vs. Phoenix. #Nuggets
At CPK, I bonded with fellow travelers over a love of Target, which also apparently sells wine-infused gummy bears? Also, when somebody accidentally broke their glass, multiple people screamed “Opa!” In conclusion, thanks Terminal 1 for the entertainment.
One sports bar I walked by had Rockets-Wolves on every other TV. On the other screens? Britney’s Baby One More Time music video, followed by other pop hits. In the upset of the century, I kept walking and went to CPK. I hope this is a safe space because I’m not proud of this.
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".
