3 Golden State Warriors Who Must Step Up for the NBA Playoffs
Matt Strasen
Can Stephen Curry be even better in the postseason?

The NBA regular season is a long, arduous grind that tests all 30 teams both mentality and physically. After 82 games of action, however, teams generally have a firm grasp of who they are and what their chances in the postseason might be.

What they don’t know, though, is which players on the roster might have a little extra in the tank to propel them to victory.

We often hear of players in the past who have stepped up in the biggest moments and cemented their legacies on the grandest stage of them all. Whether it be role players like Robert Horry hitting clutch shots or superstars like Michael Jordan raising their games higher than ever before, the postseason is where names are made.

For the Golden State Warriors, a few players must step up if the team has any hopes of making an extended run. As immensely talented as the Warriors might be, the fact remains that they have serious flaws. Their offense, along with some coaching decisions, have been inconsistent this season, and injuries have started to arise at the most inopportune times.

Still, abandoning hope now would be foolish for Warriors fans, as the team matches up nicely to many of the elite squads in the Western Conference. All it would take is for a few key guys—role players and stars aliketo up their games when the moment arrives.
