Consider this my motion to abolish 1 p.m. Raptors starts. The Sixers-Raptors MLK Day meeting was a game that made no sense. Everything was off: The players, the referees … the less said about it the better However, we have to say something so here goes:For the second straight game the Raptors declined to play any first quarter defence. They trailed the entire time in large part because of that brutal start.
The NBA’s regular season is now more than halfway done, so it’s an appropriate time to pick the award leaders through 41 (or slightly more) games. James Harden, last year’s runner-up, was the runaway leader in the MVP race before getting injured and he’s still our choice. Harden leads all in win shares, scoring, win shares per 48 minutes, box plus/minus, player efficiency rating and is third in value over replacement player.
Being an NBA head coach on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holds special meaning for the Raptors’ Dwane Casey. The 54-year-old native of Morganfield, Ky., is old enough to remember how different things were in the American South when Dr. King was still around and how much things have changed for the better thanks to his movement. Ahead of Toronto’s game in Atlanta, Casey reflected on what King means to him.
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".
