Patterson blasts Bullets in United


//

Brisbane import Lamar Patterson has breathed new life into the NBL in a stirring show of defiance against glamour side Melbourne United.

Patterson's 33 points, five rebounds and three assists on Saturday helped to devour a 17-point deficit, hauling the Bullets to a shock 97-94 win at the Brisbane Convention Centre against one of the league's genuine benchmark teams.

It was the second major scalp of fourth-placed Brisbane's campaign after they toppled the Perth Wildcats earlier this season.

The Bullets looked out of their depth in the first half, but managed to cling to United long enough to hand centre Matthew Hodgson a memorable win in his 100th NBL game.

United forward David Barlow (20 points) gave Brisbane some anxious moments in the final minutes but the Bullets had enough poise when they needed it most.

Melbourne toyed with the Bullets as early as the opening minute of the second quarter.

Chris Goulding effortlessly unravelled Brisbane's defence for a pair of assists and was also on target from three-point range.

It would have infuriated Bullets coach Andrej Lemanis that United's bench, led by man mountain Alex Pledger, contributed 11 first-quarter points, while Brisbane's back-ups added nothing.

The Bullets needed something special to turn the game into a contest.

Patterson was a source of inspiration for the home side. With every scoring play, he gave his teammates a little more belief.

Once he managed to get the Bullets firing, United struggled to make their shots count.
