For the third straight game, Jeron Teng displayed the improved dimensions of his game as he racked up another triple-double of 24 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists in Flying V’s 116-101 win over Batangas on Tuesday.

Now the league leader for most triple-doubles at three, the 23-year-old has solidified his case as one of the best amateurs in the league today.

But that’s the least of Teng’s concerns as he keeps his eyes on the prize.

“It just happened,” he said, downplaying his recent statistical feat which also helped the Thunder complete a 10-game eliminations sweep of the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup.

Teng maintained that he may be leading the team in stats, but anyone in the roster is capable of delivering any given day.

“We know what we’re capable of. We got a good organization and the best coaching staff. We have players who are veterans so you can really expect that any one in our team can step up,” he said.

And that just bodes well as Flying V wants nothing less but to cap off this tremendous run with a championship.

However, Teng said that the Thunder should still keep their feet on the ground as they prepare for tougher war ahead in the playoffs.

“It’s a good thing that coming into the playoffs, we’re still peaking. Even though we’re unbeaten, we’re still continuously learning. We’re happy, but we know we have to get back to practice right away and prepare for our upcoming games,” he said.

Flying V awaits the winner of the CEU-Batangas series for their opponent in the best-of-3 semifinals.
