It's amazing what motivation can do for some. Nine months after Kevin Durant made his initial return to Oklahoma City as a member of the Golden State Warriors and walked away with a 16-point win, the Thunder pummeled the Dubs 108-91 on Wednesday in their first visit to OKC this season. Never mind Durant going face-to-face with Russell Westbrook in the third quarter and then soaking up the end of the game from the bench.
Lonzo Ball can't shoot consistently in the NBA right now. Whether it's his wonky stroke or, as he calls it, nerves, he's an abysmal shooter at the moment. With Tuesday's 3-for-13 outing in the Los Angeles Lakers' 103-94 win over the Chicago Bulls, he's shooting 30.7 percent from the floor on the season. His effective field-goal percentage is now 35.6 percent.
It's a scene, man, this society. That was clear Monday, when LaVar Ball went live on CNN to further rebut the idea that President Donald Trump helped free his son LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA basketball players from house arrest in China. Twitter was seemingly united about the interview, and here is a taste of the reaction:I've only watched five minutes of this LaVar Ball-Chris Cuomo CNN interview, and my brain is leaking out of my ears.
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".
