Since the grand slam-seeking San Miguel Beer dropped its last two games, Fil-Am playmaker Chris Ross has been in playoff mode.

The 6-2 Ross averaged 23.5 points, 4.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and the same number of steals to lead SMB to back-to-back wins over Rain or Shine and the streaking Barangay Ginebra, respectively.

“The playoff mode has to come early, and I just want to be aggressive for my team, look for my shots, but it’s a total team effort,” Ross said, whose scintillating effort in the Beermen’s last two games earned him the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week for the period of Sept. 4-10.

The 32-year-old Ross bested Alaska’s Calvin Abueva, TNT’s Jayson Castro and San Miguel Beer teammate June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos for the weekly citation.
