A massively frustrated Fernando Alonso believes McLaren would have secured the first Q3 appearance of their Honda reunion had Q2 run its normal course. Johnathan Joseph Jersey. Alonso was heard expressing his annoyance over the radio when he was informed he would not have time for his second flying lap, after a red flag had been thrown for Nico Hulkenbergs flying wheel.Argh, argh, argh, the Spaniard groaned as he made his way back to the pits in 12th place, having missed the chance to set a time on new supersoft tyres. Massively frustrated today, Alonso later told Sky Sports F1. I think the car has the potential to be in Q3. Both McLarens were competitive.We didnt use the new tyres, we didnt use the full engine power, just waiting for that lap to be in Q3 and we didnt even open the lap, so that was frustrating. Nico Hulkenbergs Chinese qualifying comes to an abrupt end after the front left tyre of his Force India comes off and hits the safety barriers. But despite the frustration, Alonso admitted there were positives from the day too given that even Q2 appearances were a rarity for McLaren during their troubled first year back with Honda in 2015.We were aiming to pass Q1 a few races ago, and now we are frustrated to not be in Q3, so definitely the car is growing and we are moving in the right direction, he added.Chinese GP Qualifying reportAlso, we have free choice of tyres for the race, so lets take advantage of that and hopefully we finish the weekend on a high.Although denied the chance to improve their grid positions themselves by the Force India-triggered red flag, Alonso and Jenson Button do move up one position apiece on Sundays grid after stewards gave Hulkenberg a three-place penalty.Stoffel Vandoorne is the only McLaren driver to score points so far this year after the teams reserve stood in for Alonso in Bahrain, although the Spaniard and Jenson Button have both suffered a race retirement apiece so far.  Alonso, who has said he will manage the pain that remains following the rib injury he sustained in his massive Melbourne accident, is optimistic he will be able to open his account on Sunday.Points are the target - how high is impossible to know, he said. Yesterday we were not completely happy with the race pace, we were not super fast. We made a lot of changes in the car so lets see if we are more competitive and we can score more points than we think.Watch the Chinese GP on Sunday - LIVE ONLY on Sky Sports F1.

"They made me miss the free throw." A year ago, Lowrys post-game antics may not have been so well received but what was snide and snarky is now endearing quick wit. Nick Martin Jersey. Rajon Rondo had 18 of Bostons season-high 38 assists and the Celtics committed just seven turnovers in a 118-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.At 7-foot-1, Marc Gasol isnt a little anything.Hes surely not playing like Paus little brother.For the first time since the Gasols have been in the NBA its the younger one putting up the better numbers, and thats a big reason why the Memphis Grizzlies have been one of the leagues pleasant surprises this season. After never averaging even 15 points per game, Marc Gasol is averaging 20.2 through his first 30 games of the 2014-15 campaign.Pau Gasol, by the way, isnt exactly slouching, averaging 17.8 points so far this season with the Chicago Bulls.But its little bro with the better average.I really dislike the word scorer, Marc Gasol said after the Grizzlies won in Miami on Saturday night. I dont think youre a scorer. I think (if) youre looking and youre more aggressive ... more on-the-go mode, your teammates look for you more.He says he doesnt see a big difference in his game this year.Maybe he should look at those numbers again.Hes scored at least 22 points in four consecutive games, the first time thats happened in his NBA career. Hes scored at least 20 points in 17 of Memphis first 30 games, after doing it only eight times in 59 regular-season games a year ago. Hes shooting just over 50 per cent, averaging nearly four assists, and getting to the foul line more than ever.What the game gives you, Marc Gasol said, youve got to take it.Right now, it seems like the game is giving him plenty.___Heres some of what to watch for in the NBA this week:WIZARDS TESTS: Good luck finding a tougher week for any team this season than what awwaits Washington, which should learn plenty about itself over the next seven days. Houston Texans Jerseys. The Wizards play at Houston on Monday, Dallas on Tuesday, Oklahoma City on Friday and San Antonio on Saturday.RONDO RETURNS: There will likely be a serious ovation in Boston on Friday night when the Dallas Mavericks come to visit. Itll be Rajon Rondos first trip to Boston as an opponent following the trade earlier this month that got the Mavericks one of the games elite point guards.BOSH BACK: After missing eight games with a strained left calf, Chris Bosh expects to return to the Miami Heat lineup this week, possibly as early as Monday night at home against the Orlando Magic.DURANTS AVERAGE: Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant is averaging 32.3 points in regular-season games in 2014, and will finish with easily the highest average during the calendar year — about five points per game better than LeBron James. Durants will be the highest one-year average in regular-season play since Kobe Bryant averaged 34.0 points for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2006.DUNCAN MILESTONE: San Antonios Tim Duncan enters the week with 14,230 rebounds. That puts him within 11 of Walt Bellamy (14,241) for No. 10 on the NBAs all-time rebounding list.___STAT LINE OF THE WEEKKenneth Faried, Denver: This is why the guy is called Manimal. Faried had a 26-point, 25-rebound night against Minnesota on Friday, shooting 11 for 15 from the floor. It was only the sixth instance in the last five seasons of someone finishing with at least 25 points and 25 boards.
