    If Watson was the same age as Harris, I could see his promotion to starting point guard. He earned that a while ago with his often stellar play and Harris's lack of ability as a true point guard. The fact is, though, that Watson is much older and will benefit over the whole season health-wise by playing less minutes per game than Harris. Also, he doesn't mind coming off the bench and he is great leading the younger guys plus Miles and Howard or Bell. I still think the X factor is Burks. Eventually, Corbin is going to play him more. Where he plays will prove interesting. I think that he will end up playing mostly shooting guard and some point guard just as Hayward now plays either small forward or shooting guard. Also, I thought Corbin was right not changing things towards the end of the game. They were playing well together.
