How to use knock down in a sentence?

  1. Condoleezza Rice:

    Vladimir Putin is out there talking about his nuclear missiles and we should just say, first of all, nobody has ever said American missile defenses could knock down thousands of Russian missiles—I told him that myself, personally, when I was secretary of state, that missile defense is aimed at Iran or North Korea—not Russia.

  2. Hillary Clinton:

    It will take all of us working together to knock down these barriers to stand for the basic proposition that yes we are all created equal.

  3. Giannis Antetokounmpo:

    Have pride, keep your man in front of you, don’t allow them to have easy looks, don’t allow them to get easily to the free throw line. Rebound the ball. Make sure when we miss or make shots, you got to box (out). The little things add up in 48 minutes and then you’ll have the result of being good on defense. But if you let the guy shoot an open 3 then let somebody go backdoor, let somebody get offensive rebound then throw it to the 3-point guy so he can knock down the 3, all that builds up and you have a bad night.

  4. Sean King Park Strategies:

    Beijing will express total outrage at the [UN tribunal] ruling, refusing to acknowledge its validity. Vietnam and others will politely applaud a favorable Manila ruling, as it’ll knock down Beijing a peg or two and thus, at least rhetorically, strengthen their own posture versus Beijing.

  5. Ben Carson:

    We're not in the era now where you send, you know, big armies to fight or, you know, air forces. We're in a place where you use a jet plane as a missile to knock down buildings; where dirty bombs can be used to extinguish large numbers of people, there are lots of different techniques that you use -- cyber-attacks, attacking our electrical grid.
