RR Pogoy finally figured out how to play in the PBA Finals again.

Well, sort of.

Going scoreless in Games 2 and 3 after a career outing in Game 1, the TNT rookie was a little more comfortable in Game 4 of the 2017 Commissioner's Cup Finals Wednesday, breaking out of his week-long slump to help the KaTropa tie the best-of-7 series at two games apiece.

Pogoy made his first basket at the end of the first quarter, a booming three to give TNT a 27-24 lead over the Beermen. He went on to score nine points in the first half to help keep the KaTropa afloat as Jayson Castro continued to struggle offensively as well at that point.

The former FEU Tamaraw finished the game with 14 points on 66 percent shooting on top of three rebounds, two blocks, one assist, one steal, and zero turnovers.

"Masaya din kasi naka-score na," Pogoy said after the game.

"Nag-struggle ako pero nagdasal ako kay Lord, na si Lord na bahala. Natuwa ako nung na-shoot ko yung first three points ko," he added.

More than finally contributing to TNT's cause, Pogoy is elated that the KaTropa managed to a avoid a 1-3 series deficit against San Miguel.

With the Finals now tied at 2-2. things are bout to get even more heated with TNT and the Beermen.

"Back to zero na. Best-of-three na," Pogoy said. "Pero di pa to tapos."
