Ted Cruz beats Jimmy Kimmel in charity basketball game

Ted Cruz beats Jimmy Kimmel in charity basketball game

The game is only allowed to be taped by ABC for Kimmel's show Jimmy Kimmel Live and Ted Cruz's campaign.

That jab prompted Cruz to issue a challenge to Kimmel, demanding that they "settle this man-to-man".

"I have no actual moves", Kimmel said before hitting the court. Cruz, who is three years younger than Kimmel, appears to have the girth advantage, which helps out in the paint.

That's the lesson learned by a humbled Jimmy Kimmel after he faced off against Ted Cruz in a charity basketball game on Saturday, capping off a series of back-and-forth tweeting between the two that began when Kimmel mocked the Texas senator's appearance and ended with the late-night host's crushing defeat. The game will be incorporated into Kimmel's show Monday night. "I wanted to humiliate him in front of his people he loves most", the comedian jokingly continued. In "preparation" Kimmel sat down with a blobfish expert in a segment that aired on his show Thursday night.

Cruz is listed at -220 or 5/11, which basically means to win $100 you have to plunk down $220. And in case you were wondering, there was no shortage of smack talk.

China: The United States Has ‘Launched a Trade War’
Trump released a statement on the new tariffs , calling them a retaliation against Chinese intellectual property graft. The tariffs are the latest chapter in the ongoing trade conflict between the two countries.

"If I lose I'm not going home", he quipped. You have besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets. The charity event was held to raise money for Generation One and Texas Children's Hospital are both winners. The two agreed the real victor of Saturday's game was charity. If he goes up to dunk, I'll pull his shorts to the ground rather than let him get to the rim.

"I'll accept on one condition", Kimmel said in an ongoing exchange of tweets.

"Do you have any advice for me in this one-on-one game with Ted Cruz?" he asked, fresh off the athlete's sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kimmel threw out "crop tops" and again Cruz deflected.
