The Boston Celtics are the hottest team in the NBA. Recently, they defeated the best team in the Western Conference the Golden State Warriors and pushed their winning streak to 14 games after losing their first two. The Celtics are the unlikely owners of the best record in the NBA and while they definitely can’t keep this pace up, they have put the league on notice they are ready to contend for the title now.
Eight games or 10 percent into the season, LeBron James and the Cavaliers are struggling after a four-game losing streak. What is more disturbing is that they got beaten by low-level teams namely the Brooklyn Nets, New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks, and the Indiana Pacers by a whopping average margin of almost 16 points. The Cavs are now sporting an anemic 3-5 win-loss record. The main reason for the Cavaliers’ poor showing is their horrible defense.
The gruesome injury to prized forward Gordon Hayward five minutes into Boston Celtics’ season was a horrible blow to the team’s championship hopes. Hayward, who signed a max 4-year deal worth $128-million in the offseason, was a key piece to Boston’s ambitious program to finally dethrone LeBron James’ dominance in the Eastern Conference. Last season, the Celtics had the best record in the East but was easily defeated by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
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".
