The numbers don't tell the entire story — at least not in the eyes of Clippers guard Randy Foye and Coach Vinny Del Negro.

Foye has started six consecutive games for the Clippers in place of Chauncey Billups, who is out for the season because of a torn left Achilles' tendon.

Foye has not shot well, but his defense, hustle and all-around play have not gone unnoticed.

"I think he's getting a little more comfortable," Del Negro said. "He hasn't shot it great. But Randy plays hard. The guys really respect him and he gives you great effort. We have a lot of confidence in Randy."
