Cam Gliddon fires Brisbane Bullets to last-gasp win over Adelaide 36ers

A stunning last-second three-pointer from Cam Gliddon has catapulted the Brisbane Bullets to a thrilling 93-90 NBL away victory over Adelaide 36ers.

With 3.4 seconds remaining and scores locked at 90-90 on Sunday, Gliddon passed in on the Bullets' baseline to teammate Cam Bairstow for the quick 1-2 return pass and swished a corner triple over Jacob Wiley.

Brisbane coach Andrej Lemanis praised his players for devising the match-winning play for Gliddon between themselves.

"The players came up with that on their own - they didn't look over at the bench," Lemanis said.

"That's the beauty of this group, they've got a really good basketball IQ.

"I had no timeouts left so it was all left up to them at the other end of the floor."

Gliddon was a thorn in the 36ers' side all afternoon at Titanium Security Arena, finishing with 30 points, including 12 (four-of-five three-pointers) in the final term.

He was well supported by fellow off-season recruit Matt Hodgson (15 points, eight rebounds) who was impressive against his old side.

After a time-out, Adelaide captain Daniel Johnson (19 points) tried to match Gliddon's shot, but his last-second prayer was well off.

The 36ers were on song early, leading 31-24 at quarter-time and 55-50 at halftime, due largely to a 26-14 advantage on the boards. The hosts were desperate to atone for Thursday night's heated loss in Brisbane.

Reuben Te Rangi, the chief destroyer then, and Gliddon sparked a 9-0 start to the second half, amid an overall 25-6 run either side of the long break, as the Bullets took the lead and seized control in a fiery third quarter.

A double technical foul was called on Thursday's antagonists Nathan Sobey and Mika Vukona before Adelaide development player BJ Johnson copped an unsportsmanlike foul, three seconds after being substituting on.

But the youngster's energy sparked a 12-0 finish to the third term, Adelaide turning a 61-73 deficit into a 73-73 tie at three-quarter time.

Gliddon and Hodgson helped the visitors to a nine-point buffer with just over two minutes to play which the Sixers erased in fine style.

An offensive foul against Jason Cadee and Sobey's strong drive with 20 seconds on the clock allowed Adelaide to draw level before Gliddon had the final say, the 36ers falling to their third-straight defeat.
