this. and there's only a handful of games left. we need Rose to shake off the rust rather sooner than later, and Thibs understands that; he is thinking of the playoffs over these pretty much meaningless final games. (The worst we could do is probably 2nd seed, and we are sure to be in the playoffs) Putting Watson in to close the game takes time away from building chemistry.
