Tenorio flourishing in finals despite playing through injury

LA Tenorio will be the first to admit that his shot clock-beating triple in the clutch was nothing but a stroke of luck.

“It was a hail mary shot,” Tenorio proudly said.

Tenorio drilled the miraculous triple with 1:07 remaining to give Ginebra a commanding 84-76 lead. The shot turned out to be the dagger as the defending champions  took a 2-0 lead in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

What makes Tenorio’s clutch performance in Game 2 more awe-inspiring was the revelation of his head coach Tim Cone that the star playmaker is actually playing with an elbow injury.

“He’s gonna have a surgery on his shooting elbow at the end of the conference. He’s playing through it and still shooting the ball well,” bared Cone.
