    THE Adelaide 36ers' season started on the wrong foot, bowing to the Perth Wildcats, 85-73, on Friday in the 2021-22 National Basketball League (NBL) at the RAC Arena.

    Victor Law fired 37 points to go with four rebounds to star for Perth. He also led a 13-4 run to end the third quarter that turned a 59-57 deficit with 2:58 remaining to a 70-63 Perth advantage entering the payoff period.

    The Wildcats stretched the lead to 13, 78-65 with 8:26 left, but the 36ers were able to slice the lead down to just seven, 80-73, after a Cameron Bairstow layup with 3:35 remaining.
