The Phoenix Suns face a big bad bear standing in the way of their playoff dreams.

The Phoenix Suns (30-27) being a three-game stretch against Western Conference playoff teams that very will could decide the fate of their season. After a nice warm up win in Minnesota, the Suns traveled to Memphis where they will face the hot Grizzlies (33-23) on Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies are healthy now with Zach Randolph back on the court and they've won eight of their last 10 games. They present a difficult challenge of any team with their combination of size and skill up front, shooting and slashing on the wings and an aggressive defense that forces turnovers.

The Suns are riding a 5-1 stretch and playing with great confidence thanks in large part to bench guys like Shannon Brown (now filling in for Grant Hill as a starters) and Sebastian Telfair, Michael Redd and Robin Lopez. The entire team will need to step up big to get a win over the Grizzlies on the road.
