LA Tenorio captured his second Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of Week citation following another stellar performance for the red-hot Barangay Ginebra.

The Ginebra top playmaker played a significant role in the Kings’ current four-game winning streak after rapping winless NLEX Road Warriors, 101-92, last Wednesday, before humbling powerhouse TNT, 101-82, in the battle of streaking squads on Sunday.

Tenorio averaged 17 points, 5.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in Ginebra’s last two games to beat the likes of San Miguel Beer’s Alex Cabagnot and Marcio Lassiter, Ginebra teammate Japeth Aguilar, Phoenix veteran guards Cyrus Baguio and RJ Jazul, Star combo guard Paul Lee, TNT’s Jayson Castro and GlobalPort Fil-American Stanley Pringle.

The 32-year-old Tenorio played beautiful music with import Justin Brownlee in a vicious 42-point, third-quarter scoring rampage to help Ginebra turn a tight contest into a one-sided affair against NLEX on Wednesday.

He finished with 13 points, five assists, 3 steals and two rebounds for the league’s most popular ball club.

Four days later, Tenorio took advantage of TNT’s perimeter defense after firing four of his five three-pointers in the final period to help Ginebra snare its fourth straight win after losing its conference debut against Phoenix.

Tenoro finished the game with 21 points, six assists, 3 rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes of action.

The wily Ginebra sentinel hopes the Kings will maintain their sharp form, despite a long break coming up. They won’t return to action till May 7 against the Alaska Aces.
