Patterson was one of six Bullets to score in double figures while Hawks pair Angus Glover and Todd Blanchfield finished with 18 and 17.

Splintered by injuries and down to their last import, the Hawks should have been playthings for the Bullets but they showed flinty spirit in the first quarter.

Guard Glover speared the home side from the perimeter with 10 first-quarter points to help Illawarra to an early lead.

Bullet Cameron Gliddon was just as accurate, connecting on three of four triples in the first half.

Still, the Hawks would not go away. They did not commit a personal foul in 20 minutes of basketball to ensure scores were locked 47-47 at halftime.

The Bullets could not reach the free throw line until the second minute of the third term when the Hawks had a firm grip on the game.

Patterson then single-handedly changed the course of the contest with a five-minute burst.

Angered by a contentious technical foul, the import challenged the Hawks in a one-on-one battle that yielded him 10 points in rapid time.
