Thirty-plus year visual journalism professional, as a street photojournalist, picture editor and staff leader. Check out our work at www.mercurynews....
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to secure the team’s third NBA Championship and second in three years, avenging their 2016 loss in the Finals to LeBron James and the Cavs. Fans took to the streets of downtown Oakland to revel in the joy of their team’s victory, the first at home for a Bay area professional sports team in 40 years.

Kevin Durant took charge of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, sinking the kill-shot three-point shot over Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James to give the Golden State Warriors the lead permanently with less than 50 seconds left in the game, which had seen the lead see-saw back and forth between the Warriors and Cavaliers until the last six and a half minutes of the fourth quarter. The Warriors are now 15-0 in post season play and up 3-0 in the Finals.
Fans of the Golden State Warriors had their expectations met and perhaps even exceeded as they saw the Dubs blowout the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-91 in Game One of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, in Oakland California on June 1, 2017.
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".
