So far, so good. But don’t make any final judgments just yet. That was the gist of Nick Wright’s argument Tuesday on FS1’s “First Things First” when discussing Kyrie Irving’s first 18 games with the Boston Celtics. Although it’s easy to say Irving made a wise move over the offseason in requesting a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers, who ultimately dealt him to the Celtics, it’s still far too early to jump to that conclusion.
Kyrie Irving is clutch. And if the eye test isn’t enough, we have the stats to back it up. Irving joined the Celtics as a player who doesn’t shy away from big moments, and the four-time All-Star has only added to his reputation through 18 games with Boston by posting otherworldly numbers in crunch time this season.
The Boston Bruins will look to wrap up a four-game road trip with a third straight victory on Wednesday as they travel to Newark to take on the New Jersey Devils. Boston posted a 3-1 win in San Jose as +136 underdogs on Saturday after knocking off the Los Angeles Kings as +162 underdogs two nights earlier, marking the first time the club has recorded consecutive wins in 21 regular season games going into Wednesday night’s Bruins vs. Devils betting matchup at Prudential Center.
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".
