Grizzlies' 'road warriors' take on Nuggets

A long road trip usually isn't ideal for any basketball team, but doing it during a pandemic makes it even tougher for the players because of the restrictions the NBA has put in place to minimize the chances of coronavirus outbreaks.

The Memphis Grizzlies are embracing the road during their longest trip in two decades. Memphis started its seven-game trip with wins over Chicago and Milwaukee on consecutive nights and will try to make it three in a row vs. the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

It is a crucial stretch for the Grizzlies, who sit in eighth place in the loaded Western Conference with 17 games remaining, and the players say they are ready for the challenge.
