The Bullets led by as much as 21 in the second quarter, before Perth import Bryce Cotton hit an amazing running basket to steal the game off them 81-80.

With their NBL season already on life support Brisbane jumped a flat Perth from the start, racing out to a shock 10-3 lead early and then extending it to 26-18 at quarter time.

Perth looked off the pace backing up for their fifth road game since losing to Illawarra in Wollongong on December 23.

But Brisbane's worrying trait of squandering good leads continued as the visitors launched a stunning comeback after entering the final quarter trailing 62-57.

Cotton, who had just two points going into the final quarter, finished with 13 points, including the match-winning basket.

He was well supported by JP Tokoto (16 points and seven rebounds) and a valuable eight rebounds from American Derek Cooke Jnr.

For Brisbane, import Travis Trice led the way with 18 points including a pressure three-point bomb from the left wing, which put the Bullets in front 80-79 with just a few seconds left.

Let’s talk about the big scary asteroid that’s NOT going to hit Earth .
If you loaded up Google News on Sunday morning, you'd be greeted by a picture of an asteroid boiling away an ocean beside the headline “Doomsday?"Between these paragraphs, the Mail inserts occasional reminders that asteroid 2002 AJ129 will not hit Earth, according to NASA. In fact it is predicted to get no closer than 2.6 million miles from Earth, despite NASA’s scary-sounding classification of the rock as “potentially hazardous” — a term which the Mail has paired with horrific illustrations of an asteroid careening straight into the planet.
