The Rockets loss felt like a playoff game as Griffin and Paul played a lingering friendship to its conclusionA disappointing performance from the Houston Rockets culminated with a 102-113 loss and the ejection of both Blake Griffin and Trevor Ariza in the closing minutes of Chris Paul’s chippy return to the Clippers home court. Chris Paul was honored for his return with a first quarter in-stadium video and shout out from the public address announcer. Neither produced a wholesale standing ovation.
After a playoff level clash between the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers Adrian Wojnarowski dropped a bomb, James Harden, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green attempted to confront Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin in the Clippers locker room. Using a back entrance connecting the two locker rooms the Rockets were reportedly turned back by Staples Center security to prevent the desired confrontation.
Paul’s near triple-double complimented Eric Gordon’s 30 points to force Houston past Portland in a tough game. Chris Paul dropped a season-high 37 points, along with 11 assists and 7 rebounds, to force the Houston Rockets past the Portland Trail Blazers 121-112. The red and yellow boys really gritted through a difficult game while playing significantly shorthanded with only nine players available, including Briante Weber who did not take the court for basketball purposes.
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".
