In the wake of the team’s first loss of the season – and, perhaps, because of the way the Lynx lost to Connecticut at Xcel Energy Center Saturday night – coach Cheryl Reeve tweaked her team’s schedule a little bit. Normally, with so many days before the next game – the Lynx host a very good Washington team Friday night – the team would have gotten both Sunday and Monday off before returning to practice on Tuesday. But Reeve had her team in for a rather intense practice Monday.
For the first time since May 28, the Lynx returned to the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday night. But the team couldn’t have looked familiar to the announced crowd of 10,121. Beat up on the boards, run ragged on defense, the Lynx saw their winning streak to start the season end at nine in a 98-93 loss to a Connecticut Sun team that has won four games in a row and five of six. “It’s not often that we shoot 51.4 percent, 43.8 [on three-pointers], score 93 points and lose,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said.
Lindsay Whalen could see it happening, see the parts fitting together so well, feel the chemistry forming. “I remember it was the best training camp any of us ever had,” Whalen said after practice Thursday. “That’s when it really started.”Saturday the Lynx will host Connecticut at Xcel Energy Center. It will be an opportunity for Minnesota to improve to 10-0, which would be the third time in six seasons the Lynx have started a season with 10 or more wins.
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".
