Ever have funny feeling about something? That ‘thing’ you just can’t get out of your system? That NBA funny feeling, for example? I’ve this funny feeling, that despite the injury trouble, that the Spurs are lurking as we move our way toward the postseason. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve listened to NBA analysts and experts that we are counting down to the inevitable. I'm not even talking about the Finals. This is about the Western Conference Finals.
Before the San Antonio Spurs head out on their annual Rodeo Road Trip, they still need to close out their five-game homestand. The Silver and Black host the Utah Jazz tonight on KENS 5 as they look to get back on the winning track following Thursday’s loss to the Houston Rockets. The Spurs will once again be without Rudy Gay and Kawhi Leonard while Donovan Mitchell was a late scratch for the Jazz as he’s got flu-like symptoms.
There should be a lot to talk about going into Thursday’s national TV matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. James Harden is having an MVP season and coming off the NBA’s first ever 60-point triple-double he’ll be facing the Spurs for the first time since the Silver and Black eliminated the Rockets in last year’s playoffs. The Spurs are looking for a statement victory to prove that they’re still a team to be reckoned with even without Kawhi Leonard.
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".
