Baron Davis had positive things to say about the four-win Clippers after a careful evaluation. The point guard praised the energy of the youngsters and thought the team would eventually jell now that he has returned, along with center Chris Kaman . "I know we're going to win more games as myself and Chris get in better shape and get more acclimated and get our rhythm," Davis said Friday after the Clippers lost at Denver, 109-104, in a foul-riddled affair.
