There were plenty of nerves on Sunday afternoon. For the Cavaliers, it was the eve of a rematch with the current champion Golden State Warriors. For America, it was football. With two of the biggest NFL playoff upsets in years, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings have advanced to the AFC and NFC championships, respectively. Crazier than the outcome was perhaps the events of the divisional round that sent the favored Pittsburg Steelers and New Orleans Saints marching.
Many people are constantly on the lookout for the next big upcoming superstar, and the first thing we do is compare them to current NBA stars. This of course puts huge pressure on the player to succeed, and often we put that pressure on very young shoulders. The talk right now in the GM offices around the NBA is beginning to focus on one very special talent, and that is Trae Young, a player who has already been compared to Steph Curry, a huge accolade for someone so young.
Just as pieces come together for the Cavaliers, they’ve played like they’ve taken the bitter end of a breakup. With just two games at home over the last month, the Cavaliers return to Cleveland on a three-game losing streak, including two blow outs and one equally embarrassing blown lead. To make matters more unsettling, tomorrow they play host to the Golden State Warriors, the team that Cleveland has lost seven of nine since playing on Christmas.

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".
