He still was the leading points scorer for the home side with 17 while Corey Webster added 14 and Brady Manek had 11 points.
Adelaide took a 15-point buffer into the three quarter time break but there was no Wildcats come back falling short by 14-points and handing the 36ers their biggest win at RAC Arena.
The visitors were better in most facets of the game scoring at 55 per cent from the field to Perth's 40 while pulling in 44 rebounds to 34.
The most emphatic stat was scoring 60 points to 28 in the paint.
Perth are back in action next Thursday night when they are on the road to the Brisbane Bullets.
