These 2019 PBA Commissioner's Cup finals between TNT and San Miguel Beer have been as good as advertised, and all the stars of the two teams have been shining bright.

From out of the shadows, however, the KaTropa have unleashed a secret weapon that has helped tilt the best-of-7 series in their favor.

Don Trollano has been the primary defender on Beermen reinforcement Chris McCullough and Trollano has made the latter work for each and every statistic.

And with the series all even at 1-1, the unheralded swingman made his presence felt on offense, with a career-high 18 points Friday, all those key to his side's much-welcome 115-105 win.

For Trollano, his breakout game was just another day in the office.

"Gusto ko lang talagang manalo. Ryan [Reyes] is injured and I needed to step up," he said post-game, talking about their starting shooting guard who was out with a calf injury.
