Engine braking doesn't add to your braking, because you can only brake so much, and you can easily get to that point with your rear brake (which is a LOT better controllable). At a certain point, your engine does not even decellerate you, it accelerates you of you don't pull the clutch.
So, always pull the clutch when you have to brake hard.

This is even more true if you have ABS, because that only works for your brake, not for the engine.
