Wilkins notched 15 points, a career-high 12 rebounds, and 6 assists in his recent game against the Denver Nuggets.
Wilkins, who had been coming off the bench, got the rare start so that his team could match up better with the quick athletes on Denver's squad. He had the assignment to slow down Carmelo Anthony.
Wilkins more than held his own. He went 6 of 11 from the field, 3 of 3 from the line, and helped lead his team to victory, breaking a 15-game winless streak.
