The Golden State Warriors welcomed back Stephen Curry to the floor on Tuesday night.

After missing the past 11 games, Curry came out rusty to start the game.

He started 2-9 from the field in the first half, and he was only 1-5 from three.

But, Curry was not the only one struggling in the first half, as the Warriors shot 34.7% from the field as a team.

Everything seem disjointed by the Warriors as they got outplayed by an inferior Suns team.

Golden State had serious foul issues in the game as they kept allowing Phoenix to get free throws.

Conversely, the Warriors did not shoot their first free throw until 3:27 left in the first half.

The Warriors were dominated in pretty much every way in the first half.

At some point, they will need to start playing with a sense of urgency.

We did not see any of that in the first half.

Former Warrior Damian Lee was the best player on the floor in the first half scoring 14 points and 3-4 from the field.

His six made free throws were a big reason for the Sunsโ€™ early lead.

The Warriors trailed by 14 points at the half and that was a cause for concern.

Especially, because they compounded bad shooting with 11 turnovers.

Sadly for the Warriors, the second half did not get any better until late in the fourth quarter.

When the Warriors cut the game to six points before running out of gas.

All in all, the poor defense and inability to make shots for a majority of the game was the Warriorsโ€™ downfall.

The Suns were playing without Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and DeAndre Ayton yet the Warriors were embarrassed.

Altogether, this was probably the worst loss of the season for the Warriors.

Now having three straight home losses, the Warriors drop to 20-21 on the year.

Next, Golden State heads to the road where they have been terrible.

The Warriors have a 3-16 road record and have to turn that around.

The upcoming five-game road trip will be crucial for their psyche.

Finding a way to string together a few wins can get this team going again.

If not, making a trade may be the only thing that can save the Warriorsโ€™ season.
