Barangay Ginebra guard LA Tenorio set the PBA record after appearing in his 597th straight game on Sunday in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The 34-year-old Tenorio surpassed PBA legend Alvin Patrimonio for the most number of consecutive games played.

Making things more interesting is Tenorio achieved the feat against Patrimonio and the Magnolia Hotshots.
