Misfiring RR Pogoy gets PBA Finals advice from Arwind Santos

"Kailangan alamin niya kung paano i-handle ang ganyang pressure." --- Arwind Santos' advice to RR Pogoy as the TNT rookie has gone cold in the PBA Finals.
In an unprecedented move, Arwind Santos has offered advice to one of his rivals in the ongoing 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup.
With the championship series between San Miguel and TNT already oozing with drama and its only three games in, Santos took the time to offer some words of wisdom on KaTropa rookie RR Pogoy.
Yes, the same player Santos was furiously mad at just a couple of days ago after he got hit by a low blow during a fastbreak play.
Since firing a career-high 27 points in TNT series-opening win in Game 1, Pogoy hasn't scored since for the KaTropa, going for zero points in Games 2 and 3.
Santos says his fellow FEU alumni needs to figure out how to play in the PBA Finals especially since he's one of the players TNT counts on to pick up victories.
"Hindi ko alam sa kanya pero si Pogoy, isa rin siya sa inaasahan ng TNT. Siguro nasa kanya yan kung paano siya maga-adjust," Santos said.
"Kailangan alamin niya kung paano i-handle ang ganyang pressure," he added.
Taking control of this best-of-7 series witha 2-1 lead, san Miguel has done a perfect job of handling the pressure of these Finals.
After dominating the PBA for the better part of the last three years, maintaining composure under the birightest of lights already comes as a second nature for the mighty Beermen.
"Ang maganda sa team namin pagka-nagagalit, yun yung lagi namin nire-remind sa isa't-isa na okay lang magalit dahil ayaw lang namin matalo talaga," Arwind said.
"Kung gusto nila ng ganong laro, pagbibigyan namin pero kailangan huwag kaming mawala sa gusto naming gawin," Santos added.
