Wildcats get the job done in tight affair

The Perth Wildcats stole the show against the Brisbane Bullets running away 83-70 victors.


Friday night's game boiled over in the third quarter with the referees needing to seperate players as tensions flared.


Perth’s Vic Law and Brisbane’s Deng Deng came face to face, Law dipped his head forward and Deng threw himself to ground with a delayed reaction.


Wildcats coach Scott Morrison said the tension showed how much was at stake.


“I’m fairly new to this deal but it feels like every game is going to be like that,”


“Every game is so important. Everyone is familiar with each other. A lot of these guys have been battling for years. Everyone is very competitive. They wouldn’t be here if they weren’t."


Bryce Cotton top scored with 29-points while captain Jesse Wagstaff contributed 19-points.


It's a double header for the Wildcats who take on the Tasmanian Jackjumpers on Sunday.
