Coach Stan Van Gundy admits his Detroit Pistons desperately need a confidence boost.
Facing the injury-plagued Denver Nuggets could provide the lift they're seeking.
Following a hot start, the Pistons have lost six straight -- but all but two of those defeats were by five points or fewer. The margin of their latest loss was a little deceptive. They were within four points of Eastern Conference leader Boston with less than three minutes remaining before falling 91-81 at home on Sunday.
