TORONTO - The Knicks should send the schedule-maker a Christmas card. Heading into Friday at Toronto, New York was the only team in the NBA to play as few as four games on the road. And following Wednesday’s rematch against the Raptors at the Garden, the Knicks will have hosted 11 of their opening 16 games. For a young team trying to build from the bottom, the home-centric start has been advantageous – and the home crowd deserves the assist.
TORONTO - Joakim Noah faced the harsh reality that his best days are over. About one hour before he observed Friday's game in a suit because he didn't make the active roster, Noah reconciled with the state of his game - and "Probably not," Noah said when asked if he could recover his All-NBA form. "I can help. I feel like I could help this team and that's just my reality. But I just want to, you know, just be the best that I can be.
TORONTO - Kristaps Porzingis and the Knicks were grounded in Canada. In a game New York never led, Porzingis was bullied into inefficiency and his team was blown out by Raptors, 107-84. It was the most lopsided defeat of the season for the Knicks (8-7), who shot an abysmal 33 percent and fell to 1-4 on the road. Porzingis, who missed 10 of his 13 shots while managing just 13 points, suddenly looks mortal after his blazing start.
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".
