The Memphis Grizzlies are now headed into the stretch run with significant hurdles before them. Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol and company have done a fine job putting themselves in position to compete in the Western Conference playoff race.

Now, they have to show that they can stay strong in a race in which 3.5 games separate the No. 3 and No. 9 teams.

The Grizzlies have a couple of notable challenges this month. First, they must successfully reintegrate Zach Randolph into the lineup after a long absence due to injury. Second, they'll play 10 of the 15 March games on the road, where they've struggled this season.

Following are six things that the Grizzlies must be able to do to ensure that they enter the home stretch with a head of steam.
