MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The surging Memphis Grizzlies are about to face their toughest stretch of the season.

The team that had the NBA's best start this season heads into March winners of eight straight. Going into Thursday's games Memphis (38-18) was fourth in the West thanks in part to a friendly schedule.

The Grizzlies have played the fewest road games of any team in the conference - but that's about to change.

They visit Miami on Friday, the first of 17 games in 30 days, including 11 away from Memphis. March also features a Western swing with four games in five nights and five back-to-backs.

Coach Lionel Hollins doesn't plan on resting players. He says the Grizzlies can't expect someone else to help them secure their third straight playoff berth.
