Utah Jazz power forward Derrick Favors is not among the better free-throw shooter in the NBA. This season, Favors is shooting only 64 percent from the stripe. But Toronto Raptors center Lucas Nogueira didn't care. He wanted to make sure Favors would miss a foul shot, so he pulled the ultimate distraction.
Late in the third quarter of their game last night at Canada Center, Favors had an opportunity to extend his team's lead at the free-throw line. Nogueira wasn't going to let that happen. He pulled down his shorts—all the way to his ankles. This would catch anyone off guard, and it worked. Favors missed the free throw.
Intentional distraction or not, it worked.https://t.co/7CkygLK9XH

It appeared that the 24-year-old Brazilian was just fixing his jersey, but he preferred to drop his shorts rather than simply pull his waistband out and tuck the jersey back in. The Raptors won the game 101-93.
