Bryce Cotton was back to his old self as he lifted the Perth Wildcats to a pressure-easing NBL victory and declared he felt like the three-time MVP winning version of himself for the first time this season.

 

After his 29-point showing on Saturday night in the 99-88 win over the Adelaide 36ers at RAC Arena, Cotton’s message was simple about his bounce-back performance.

“It feels good, I won’t lie, to have my first game coming out like this,” Cotton said.

I don’t know who that other guy was wearing my jersey for the first seven games. It feels good to be back.”

 

Since Cotton joined the Wildcats midway through the 2016-17 NBL season, he has proven an unstoppable force, winning three league MVP awards along with leading Perth to three championships.

 

However, his start to this season had been anything but up to his usual standards and things hit a precarious point following last Friday’s loss at home to a shorthanded Brisbane Bullets.
