Slaughter credits Tenorio for making Ginebra’s big lineup work

Barangay Ginebra may have just found its killer five as coach Tim Cone experimented with his bigs on Sunday.

With LA Tenorio being the lone true guard, the Gin Kings trotted out a towering lineup of import Justin Brownlee, Joe Devance, Japeth Aguilar, and Greg Slaughter for the better half of the third quarter.

That particular lineup caused major problems for GlobalPort as Ginebra went on to cruise to a 124-108 win.

And it could also serve as bad news for the rest of the league that it may not be the last time the PBA will see that five-man combination.

“We’re playing really good with that lineup out there,” said Slaughter. “We’re able to impose our presence, but we still need a lot of things to figure out.”

The Cebuano giant flourished playing alongside his fellow bigs, but said that much of the praise should be on Tenorio, who ran the show for his other four teammates on the floor.
