LA Tenorio wasted no time chasing career milestones in three-point shots made and in steals, hitting the marks right in the opening period.
And interestingly, he drained a trey and pulled a steal to cap his memorable game.
The chief Ginebra playmaker fired away 5-of-9 triples in all to highlight a 20-point outing as the Gin Kings dumped the Blackwater Elite, 101-93, to move up to joint third in the PBA Governors Cup Wednesday night at the Cuneta Astrodome.
A triple-double effort from Justin Brownlee also marked Ginebra’s fourth straight win that handed the Kings a share of third place with the Meralco Bolts at 5-2.
The Elite, meanwhile, dropped deeper down the cellar at 2-7.
Doing a conscious effort or not, Tenorio, right in the opening quarter, became the seventh player in league history to sink a 1,000th triple and also seventh to pull at least 800 steals.
