PBA Commissioners Cup, San Miguel vs TNT game 4 finals (replay) result, recap – June 28, 2017. TNT rides inspired soon-to-be dad Joshua Smith to frustrate SMB, tie PBA Finals at 2-2. TNT KaTropa refused to flinch in the presence of the barking dogs of San Miguel Beer this time, hacking out a 102-97 victory to tie the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals at two games apiece on Wednesday night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
A day after TNT coach Nash Racela compared the Beermen to barking dogs protecting their territory, the Texters showed the commendable character as old reliables Jayson Castro and Ranidel de Ocampo brought them home after young guns Troy Rosario and Roger Pogoy bounced back from scoreless outings and gave them an early lift.
Joshua Smith also kept his composure amid the physicality as he muscled his way to 20 points and 15 boards in 30 minutes in a rare start a day before his wife, Kristy, is expected to give birth, a momentous occasion the Texters celebrated by putting “Kristy” patches on their jerseys.
Final : 102 – 97 in favor of the TNT KaTropa! Best Player: Joshua Smith with 20 points and 15 rebounds.
