Tiu fired 23 points, 15 of which came in the fourth period as ROS landed the knockout blow on the Batang Pier. 23 points is Tiu's career high in the PBA.
For someone who was dealing with retirement rumors a couple of season ago, Chris Tiu certainly looks like he can go on for quite a bit still in the PBA.
In fact, in Wednesday's win over Northport, Tiu played perhaps his best game with Rain or Shine, leading four Elasto Painters with at least 20 points.

"I needed this game because I've been struggling the past few games," Tiu said.
"The team relies on me offensively, I'm happy I was able to get some rhythm going today," he added.
As he went unconscious in the fourth quarter, Tiu says that the Elasto Painters need all the wins they could get, so he was not letting go of this one.
"Wala na bukas eh, kailangan na ibigay lahat," he said.
"I had to take my usual shots, there are times that I hesitated a little bit but nilabanan ko na lang utak ko na that's not how it's supposed to be and coach Caloy kept me in the game and thankfully I was able to deliver," Tiu added.
