The 7-foot-3 Filipino got five points, four rebounds, and a block in close to 12 minutes of action.

With the Bullets cutting an 84-77 lead down to one with three seconds left, Robert Franks nailed two clutch free throws to seal Adelaide’s fourth straight win to climb to 10-8 for for sixth — just half a game behind fourth-running Cairns, who they face on Saturday.

Tyley Johnson missed a Hail Mary on the other end.

Franks got 18 points and six rebounds while Antonius Cleveland tallied 13 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and four steals. Anthony Drmic also got a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.
