CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Celtics spent Wednesday night playing to the level of their opponent, keeping the Charlotte Hornets close with lazy touch fouls, putrid offensive execution, and poor shot selection. And when the Hornets finally gained the confidence they haven’t consistently possessed all season, the Celtics were unable to save themselves from another disheartening defeat.
CLEVELAND — It’s been a difficult past few days for the Boston Celtics, beginning with their humiliating 44-point loss to the Cavaliers in Game 2 followed by the stunning text message from Isaiah Thomas to his teammates that he was out for the remainder of the playoffs with a hip injury. For the past 48 hours, that Game 2 performance turned the Celtics into the primary reason why playoff basketball has been so mundane. They were called a fraud No.
WASHINGTON — The reality is the Washington Wizards have been the better team in this series. They have made the Celtics look really bad on several occasions, including the game-deciding 26-0 beatdown in the third quarter Sunday night that helped the Wizards win, 121-102Yet, the series is tied, 2-2. The Celtics still own home-court advantage and will play Game 5 Wednesday in Boston. But Game 4 was infuriating for the Celtics because it was a game in which they could have prevailed.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
