With offense lagging, Watson gets start over Tinsley

Earl Watson will start at point guard Monday against the Boston Celtics, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin announced pregame.

The Jazz have struggled to find offensive flow early in games. Jamaal Tinsley will move to the bench and Alec Burks will get time as the backup point guard, as well, as the Jazz wait for Mo WIlliams to return from his January thumb surgery.

"Hopefully with Earl in there," Corbin said, "he should give us some more pace, getting the ball down the floor."

Tinsley started 32 games for the Jazz, averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in those games. Watson missed the first 12 games of the season after offseason knee surgery. He averages 6.6 points and 4.5 assists per game.

Corbin's decision to juggle his line-up comes two nights after the Jazz struggled in a 107-94 loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles.

L.A. jumped to a 17-6 lead at the beginning of the game before opening the second half with an 11-0 run that put the Jazz in a deep hole.

Corbin's new starting line-up will be his ninth in 57 games this season.
