We are living in a time when a big shift in American sports scene may actually be happening before our very eyes. The NFL – polarized by protests, political activism and business interests – is having a terrible year. To top it off, injuries have been plaguing all of the major teams which at the end of the day means less field action. And that equates to less interest in the end product. Meanwhile the NHL and the MLB can’t seem to gain a significant advantage from the situation.
The Cavaliers kickoff their longest road trip of the season, where five of their next six will be played on another team’s court. Tonight, they visit the Houston Rockets, who hold the second seed in the West. Thankfully, the better the team, the better version of the Cavs we usually get. Here are some pindowns, thoughts for your thoughts:This loss was especially painful because of the obvious efforts by the Cavaliers. The road trip continues on Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks.
Cleveland’s feelings can be summarized by LeBron James’ last tweet. We’re in the mood for some pindowns as the Cavs host the Milwaukee Bucks and hope to improve to 5-6.Cavs forced early foul trouble and found the bonus 2.5 minutes into the game. Out of 32 attempts against Milwaukee in five quarters, the Cavs have only missed one.In the first half, Kevin Love was excellent on defense, J.R. Smith was excellent on offense.
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".
