Jeff Chan underscored his readiness for the playoffs with back-to-back clutch performances to earn his first Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award for the period covering April 4-10 in the Oppo-PBA Commissioner's Cup.

The 6-foot-2 Rain or Shine gunner has stepped up while combo guard Paul Lee works his way back to game shape, firing 15 points spiked by four triples in a runaway 116-94 whipping of GlobalPort last April 5.

The Bacolod sniper hardly cooled off five days later, firing five crucial points in the final period as the Elasto Painters hammered Blackwater Elite, 118-107, for Rain or Shine's sixrh win in its past seven games.

He finished the game with 12 points.

Chan bested San Miguel star slotman June Mar Fajardo, Meralco's Jimmy Alapag, Tropang TNT guard Jai Reyes and GlobalPort's Terrence Romeo for the weekly citation.
