Rain or Shine's Chris Tiu named PBA Player of the Week

MANILA – Rain or Shine’s guard Chris Tiu was named the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week after providing vital help for the undermanned Elasto Painters en route to back-to-back wins in the Governors’ Cup.

Tiu bested teammates Jericho Cruz and Beau Belga, Meralco’s Garvo Lanete, Blackwater playmaker Roi Sumang, GlobalPort’s Stanley Pringle and NLEX’s Kevin Alas for the citation.

The former Ateneo de Manila University star unleashed impressive performances off the bench for the transitioning and shorthanded Rain or Shine, averaging 9.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists in the last two outings.

The Elasto Painters have been adjusting over the week due to the trade of long-time resident gunner Jeff Chan to Phoenix in exchange for Mark Borboran.

Gabe Norwood and Raymond Almazan were also absent in Rain or Shine’s victory against KIA and Talk N’ Text as they suited up for the Gilas Pilipinas in the FIBA Asia Cup in Beirut, Lebanon.
