MANILA—Rondae Hollins-Jefferson has finally been cleared to play for TNT.

However, the team cleared the way for RR Pogoy to put on a show of his own.

Pogoy exploded for 40 points as the Tropang Giga walloped the Blackwater Bossing, 138-116, in their PBA Governors' Cup game on Wednesday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

Pogoy went 13-for-21 from the field including 7-of-13 from beyond the arc to lead TNT, which quickly dropped the hammer on Blackwater from the get-go and led by as much as 31 points.

Hollins-Jefferson, who got to play in the 11th hour after finally securing a letter of clearance from the KBL's Jeonju Egis, added 37 points on 14-of-23 shooting, 13 rebounds, seven assists, and two blocks, while Glenn Khobuntin had 13 points, 10 rebounds, and one assist for the Tropang Giga, who are momentarily on top of the team standings at 6-1.

Troy Williams was held to 22 points on 7-of-21 shooting with eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block, while Jvee Casio put up 21 points, two rebounds, and one steal for the Bossing, who fell to 1-6.
