WATCH: LA Tenorio hits 'Christmas Miracle' 3 as Ginebra beats Star

MANILA, Philippines - LA Tenorio lived up to the "Never Say Die" mantra just when Ginebra needed it.

The Gilas Pilipinas veteran, who has made his share of buzzer beaters throughout his career, added another one in a big game, draining a 3-pointer as time expired in overtime to give Barangay Ginebra a 92-89 victory over the Star Hotshots on Christmas Day, Friday, December 25.

It was a stunning comeback for Ginebra, which was down 18 in the second half before clutch play sent the game into overtime.

The game-winner wasn't Tenorio's only buzzer-beater of the night: he banked in a 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter as well.

Ginebra, which had twice to beat advantage, eliminates their Manila Clasico rivals Star and will now face Globalport Batang Pier in the do-or-die phase two of the PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals. –
