Free throws, despite their gratis implication, can often be difficult, particularly if given the right kind of mental interference.

With less than a second left in the first half in Houston, the New Orleans Pelicans' Norris Cole was confronted with such a diversion—a red, sparkly, sequined diversion.

Two women clothed in little more than large, red- and white-striped top hats, presumably portraying scantily clad Dr. Seuss characters, entered a pseudo-fight instigated by the pulling of one friend's faux tail.

And just in case the feline females weren't ample distraction, Thing 1 and Thing 2 on the right side of the screen very well may be.

That's taking home-court advantage to a whole 'nother level.
