    YAS MARINA, Abu Dhabi -- Nico Rosberg says he was simply unable to match Lewis Hamilton in qualifying for the season finale in Abu Dhabi, but remains positive he can still secure his first title with a victory on Sunday. Dana Barros Jersey .Hamilton beat Rosberg to pole by a convincing 0.303s on Saturday evening, with Rosberg unable to find an answer for his title rival in the final sector of the lap. Rosberg still starts Sundays race in a stronger position for title success, with a podium finish enough to secure his first championship on Sunday evening, but he is not deviating from his plan to go for the win.As I have said, I have come here to try and be on pole and try and win the race tomorrow -- thats what Id love to do so Im not ecstatic with today, he said. Lewis just did a great job and was a couple of tenths quicker.It just wasnt possible for me to do that time today, even though I gave it everything. But, as we know, theres still opportunities tomorrow and for sure Ill try and go for the win.The biggest threat to Rosbergs title hopes will come from the Red Bulls and Ferraris behind him on the grid. If Hamilton wins the race with two rival cars between him and Rosberg he will take the title, making a good start crucial for Rosbergs chances.He could be helped by Daniel Ricciardo starting on the super-soft tyre from third, which will offer less grip away from the line than the ultra-softs chosen by Rosberg, but the championship leader was reluctant to start thinking that far ahead.I havent thought about that, Im still thinking about qualifying at the moment, he said. I guess its better to start the race [on ultra-softs] and then weve got to see how the ultra-softs hold up. But we are very confident that we have chosen the right tyre for the best possible race tomorrow. Im optimistic.Tomorrow I will keep it simple and wont think about what-ifs -- that would be the wrong approach for a good performance tomorrow. Amir Johnson Jersey .

SAN ANTONIO -- If the San Antonio Spurs werent aware of how poorly theyve played in the opening half of most games this season, they were forcefully reminded recently.After coach Gregg Popovich called out their professionalism and effort, the Spurs rebounded from their first road loss of the season with their most efficient home performance.Kawhi Leonard had 30 points and the Spurs set five season highs, rolling to a 130-101 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.The Spurs led by as many as 38 three days after what Popovich deemed another 24-minute effort in a 95-91 defeat at Chicago.We have so many professional guys and veteran guys, it shouldnt take him to do that, San Antonio reserve guard Patty Mills said, but it definitely affected everyone to know that weve got to lace them up here and do what we do. No one messing around.The Spurs set season highs for points, points in a quarter, points in a half, assists and 3-pointers in winning their 14th straight at home over the Nets. San Antonio also matched its largest margin of victory, set in a season-opening win over Golden State.It feels good, especially to do it at home, said point guard Tony Parker, who had a season-high seven assists. Weve been struggling a little bit at home. We had a good start today. Energy was good. And we kept it for the whole game.The Spurs effort through the opening 36 minutes enabled them to sit Leonard in the final quarter, which was the only time the Nets could slow the sleek 6-foot-7 forward.Leonard was 10 for 18 from the field, including 4 for 7 on 3s, in scoring 30 points or more for the seventh time this season. He had four 30-point games in his previous 324 career games.San Antonio was 14 for 26 on 3-pointers.They execute their offense with pace, Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. They are tough to chase around; they really share (the ball). It was a great challenge for us and we werent up to it.After a string of anemic starts at home that had frustrated the Spurs, San Antonio set season highs for points in any quarter and any half with a 41-point effort in the opening period that helped produce a 67-52 lead at halftime.The 41 points in the first quarter were nine more than the Spurs had against Chicago in the first half.We didnt like the way we played, Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili said. We needed to feel better about the way we played. Trevor Booker Jersey. .San Antonio had five assists on its first six baskets, with Parker collecting a pair of assists off bounce passes for mid-range jumpers from LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol. The Spurs had a season-high 38 assists.Bojan Bogdanovic led Brooklyn with 20 points.TIP-INSNets: Brooklyn has not won consecutive games all season. ...

The Spurs previous high for any quarter was 39 points in the third against the Lakers on Nov. 18. The teams previous high for the opening period was 31 in the season-opening win against Golden State.WORTH WATCHINGThe Spurs gave the Nets plenty of film to watch on how to execute properly.One thing thats great seeing a team like that is watching how they move the ball, how they share the ball (and) how quick their decisions are, Atkinson said. Its good for us as a coaching staff and good for our players to kind of feel that and feel what its like. Hopefully one day we will try to imitate that.ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENTSan Antonio might have the NBAs second-best record at 19-5, but the Spurs know they still have much to improve on.I think in this case we can, Ginobili said. I dont think youre going to find anybody in this locker room that feels satisfied with the way we are playing. We all know we can do so much better. The record is not that important when youre not playing well.UP NEXTNets: At Houston on Monday.Spurs: Host Boston on Wednesday. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From ChinaCheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
