Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy’s words say he is keeping the faith.

But it’s starting to sound like false bravado from a coach with an uncertain future.

After the Pistons’ latest loss — a 112-90 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night to conclude a winless three-game trip — Van Gundy said he remains confident the ship can be righted over the final 18 games.

“The thing can change and it can change quickly and overnight," Van Gundy said at Quicken Loans Arena. "I’ve seen it, I’ve coached it. The problem is it’s getting late so it’s got to come like now. We got to get some wins and do it now, but do I have confidence that we can get it done? Absolutely.”

It’s hard to see.

The Pistons (29-35) have lost six of seven games since the All-Star break.

They have scored more than 100 points twice in those seven games.

After winning their first four games with Blake Griffin, the Pistons have lost nine of 11 games.

They are five games behind the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat for the Eastern Conference's last playoff spot.
