When DeMar DeRozan was little, his father Frank made a point of recording every moment of every NBA All-Star Weekend. Even when the family didn’t have cable television, Frank would find a way. He’d invite himself over to a friend’s house and pop in a VHS tape, preserving it for a boy who could never get enough of the game’s brightest spectacle. DeRozan is not one of your superstars who finds the NBA All-Star Game an imposition, an inconvenience or an obstacle to a weekend in the sun.
TORONTO — The story wasn’t that the San Antonio Spurs were in town. The story was who wasn’t. The NBA’s beacon of consistency — playing at a 50-win pace for the 21st consecutive season, all under head coach and team president Gregg Popovich – tipped off against the Toronto Raptors without the help of their resident MVP candidate, Kawhi Leonard, their future Hall-of-Famer Manu Ginobili and their second-leading scorer, Rudy Gay. Yes, that Rudy Gay. He’s a Spur now and has been sprinkled in magic dust.
TORONTO – The goal was simple: After a whirlwind week where the Toronto Raptors were in the centre of the NBA storm and played five games in eight days – three of them without Kyle Lowry – just get back to winning as normal. The Raptors did it with a return of their three-point mojo from their primary three-point maestros as Lowry and C.J. Miles combined to shoot 9-of-22 from three in Toronto’s 96-91 win.
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".
