After career game, Tiongson gets Player of the Week nod

MANILA, Philippines – Just one day after submitting a career-best effort in NLEX's victory over GlobalPort, guard Juami Tiongson has been named the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week.

Tiongson's road to the NLEX Road Warriors was a winding one, as he spent much of his first two PBA seasons stuck on the bench at Blackwater. He had a stint in the PBA D-League last year, playing for the AMA Titans.

He nearly quit basketball after that, but was instead signed by the Road Warriors, where he has since been making the most of his return to the PBA.

On Sunday, he came up with the best game of his professional career, as he had 21 points, four assists, a steal, and a block in NLEX's 109-99 victory over the GlobalPort Batang Pier.

Tiongson was at his best in the final period, as he knocked down four of his five three-pointers in the frame to give the Road Warriors the separation they needed against a GlobalPort team that was playing without Stanley Pringle.
