5 Players Who Must Step Up for Phoenix Suns' Remaining Games

The Phoenix Suns have been such a surprising case this year, with almost all of the players exceeding expectations.

So, is it really possible for the team to continue to "step up" for the remainder of the season?

If the Suns want to make the playoffs, that may be necessary. 

The Suns are currently the 8th seed in an extraordinarily competitive Western Conference. On the bright side, they're only one game removed from the 6th seed. But on the other hand, they are also just two losses removed from falling out of the playoff picture altogether.

The Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies are all competing with Phoenix for a playoff spot, and it will be an exciting race to witness. Though the Suns have generally done well this season, being without point guard Eric Bledsoe puts them at a disadvantage.

And while Bledsoe recovers from a right knee injury, the team will need various players to either step up their level of production or maintain their current hot streaks. Otherwise, the team could fail to clinch a playoff seed. 

So, which players will be absolutely crucial down the stretch? And who must step up in order for the team to make that playoff push?
