Rhodes and Ross had it bad in San Miguel's Game 4 loss

Best Import Charles Rhodes didn't exactly have great performance for San Miguel in the Beermen's Game 4 loss to TNT in the Finals.
Game 4 of the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals started out great for Charles Rhodes.
Prior to facing TNT again, the towering San Miguel reinforcement was named Best Import of the mid-season conference, a proper reward for him helping the Beermen end their 16-year Finals slump in the Commissioner's Cup.
It went all downhill from there.
Not only did the Beermen drop Game 4 to the KaTropa to lose a 2-1 series lead, Rhodes was ejected late in the fourth quarter after accumulating two technical fouls.
"That's not a good game for us," Rhodes said after scoring 22 points to lead the Beermen.
"It really hurts man, it really hurts. This loss is probably our worst loss this year," he added.
Chris Ross, the other San Miguel player who earned an individual award prior to Game 4 had it worse.
After winning his first Best Player of the Conference award, Ross struggled for only eight points, five rebounds, and four turnovers, far from the usual two-way destroyer that he is at point guard.
"It starts with me," he said after a rare down performance.
"I didn't play well enough today for us to win and I feel I let my team down. I'll be better next game," Ross added.
