Bringing in Kevin Durant to form arguably the most talented team of all time was a no-brainer for the Golden State Warriors. When healthy and clicking, the Warriors are a darn-near unbeatable juggernaut, playing basketball at a historic level. But another reason why Durant to the Warriors was a no-brainer is the fact that the Warriors are still a juggernaut even when they’re not healthy and clicking (though they’re at least a tad more beatable).
Wednesday night almost brought about a perfect storm of badness actually being good in the NBA. The four worst teams in the NBA in terms of record — the Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings — all held leads going into the fourth quarter. One can forgive the Mavericks and Kings for their defeats. Dallas held a slim three-point margin heading into the final frame against the league-leading Boston Celtics.
On Nov. 10, the Utah Jazz suffered an ugly 84-74 loss to the Miami Heat that dropped them to 5-7 on the season. Adding injury to insult, Rudy Gobert suffered a bone bruise in his knee that would keep him out 4-6 weeks. With Gobert out and Gordon Hayward gone to Boston (not to mention a potential season-ending injury Dante Exum and a wrist injury to Joe Johnson), the Jazz’s season already appeared to be on the brink. Going 1-3 in the first four games without Gobert put Utah into a deeper hole.
@GreenBlueC The variance I've been referring to more is opponent 3-point shooting and the Bulls shooting like the Warriors in 4th quarters. Also some variance in their crazy hot mid-range shooting.
Niko is also overachieving right now, but I have little doubts he's better.
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".
