PBA: Tenorio, Gin Kings quick to move on to Game 4
"We only got one game, inside the locker room after the game it was nothing, we moved on right away and are thinking about Friday's game right away," Tenorio said.

While it was Justin Brownlee that did most of the heavy liftin to bring back Barangay Ginebra from an 18-point deficit in Game 3 of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals, it was actually LA Tenorio who hit the final marginal basket to keep the Gin Kings' title defense alive.

Tied at 103, Tenorio hit the go-ahead floater with 14 seconds to go.

And after Ginebra forced a Magnolia miss, Tenorio also hit the last two free throws to seal the final tally.

"Na-shoot siya eh," Tenorio said on his final field goal.

"Well opportunity yun na nabigay sakin on that particular possession, might as well take it di ba? Everyone is expecting Justin to get the ball. We got nothing to lose in that possession, I was just thinking of being aggressive and see what was gonna happen," he added.

Tenorio was terrible all game long for the Gin Kings, struggling to find his shot.

While LA did finish with 14 points for the game, 11 of them came in the final period to help Ginebra pull through.

"Actually struggling ak othe whole game, medyo iba yung pakiramdam ko today eh. But that's not an excuse," he said.

"I think the whole team was really focused today but I cannot say na we really played well," he added.

Despite cutting their Manila Clasico deficit in half, Tenorio and the Gin Kings are not quite happy yet.

It's just one game after all.

"We only got one game, inside the locker room after the game it was nothing, we moved on right away and are thinking about Friday's game right away," Tenorio said.
