    CHRISTIAN Standhardinger is looking forward to a solid finish to an up-and-down debut conference in the PBA as San Miguel goes for the title in the 2018 Commissioner’s Cup.

    A knee injury limited Standhardinger's appearances but he is determined to contribute to the powerhouse squad’s cause when the lights are at its brightest in the best-of-seven finals against crowd favorite Ginebra.

    “I’m happy that I’m part of this family and I hope there will be a great match-up and a great show,” he said on Tuesday.

      “I’m great. I’m just trying to help the team as much as I can for the minutes that I’m on the court,” said the top overall pick in the 2017 PBA Draft.
