ATLANTA - Gregg Popovich was asked after Monday’s 102-99 loss to the Hawks if he’s starting to believe the Spurs just might be snake bit this season when it comes to injuries. “No, I don’t think like that,” the coach said. Nobody, though, would blame him if he did after the Spurs lost Manu Ginobili to a right thigh contusion late in the first quarter. Ginobili limped to the locker room after he ran into a screen set by former Spurs center Dewayne Dedmon.
ATLANTA – Spurs coach Gregg Popovich became emotional Monday as he recalled where he was on April 4, 1968 when he learned the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated in Memphis, Tenn."I can remember sitting in a room with other second classmen - juniors, I should say - (at the Air Force Academy), and it was just disbelief more than anything, especially given the speech he had already given," Popovich said. As he continued, Popovich did so in a halting voice.
ATLANTA - The Spurs left San Antonio on Sunday hopeful that Kawhi Leonard would be able to play back-to-back games for the first time this season. But that won't be the case after the club made him a late scratch before Monday afternoon's game against the Hawks due return from injury management. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said in his pre-game session with reporters that Leonard would be a game-time decision due to a leg issue.
@SpurForLife@orkunmert It's Manu who likely won't play against the Nets. Kawhi should be fine, I believe. Look for an update tomorrow from @JMcDonald_SAEN, who will cover the games in Brooklyn and Toronto.
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".
