Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard took to social media to defend head coach Terry Stotts on Saturday, saying the blame for Portland's slow start should fall on the players not the coaching staff. Lillard responded to fans' comments on the Trail Blazers' Instagram page on a post promoting Saturday's game the Sacramento Kings. "Everybody that has somethin (sic) to say about coach Stotts doesn't know a damn thing about what it takes to win a close game," Lillard wrote.
After stumbling to their worst loss of the season Friday night in Sacramento, the Portland Trail Blazers came back home to exact some revenge. The Blazers handled their business against the Kings on Saturday, earning a comfortable 102-90 win at the Moda Center. Portland (9-7) didn't play down to the competition, blowing out the Kings (4-12) a night after their offense complete disappeared in Sacramento. The Blazers never trailed after halftime, earning their fifth double-digit win of the season.
The good, bad and nerdy from the Portland Trail Blazers over the last weekCJ McCollum understands what Shabazz Napier has experienced in the first three-plus seasons of his career. The Blazers reserve guard has put in hours of hard work and commitment behind the scenes only to show up on game days and rarely get off the bench. "I know what it's like to be good enough to play and not play," McCollum said explaining the patience required to develop while stuck outside of the rotation.
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".
