A rough season for the Utah Jazz got rougher on Sunday when the team announced that Rudy Gobert is out for at least four weeks with a bone bruise in his right leg. Does that change how the Jazz view their season? Are they still competing, or should they look at rebuilding? KSL.com’s Andy B. Larsen joins the Weekly Run podcast to look at the big picture for the Jazz in the wake of the injury to the one guy who couldn’t get injured — and to argue on behalf of petty NBA trash talk.
In an odd quirk of analytics this season, the numbers say the Jazz have a higher offensive rating and a lower defensive rating when Rudy Gobert is off the floor. The numbers say opponents outscore Jazz lineups with the 7-foot-1 center, and lineups without him tend to outscore the competition. The game later that night illustrated why numbers can’t always be trusted without context. The Jazz simply were outmatched in a 109-98 loss that only became remotely competitive in the last quarter.
The Utah Jazz are at home Monday night to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves starting at 7 p.m. Follow our live game blog here for updates from Tribune Jazz reporters Tony Jones and Kyle Goon
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".
