"This will be Ted Cruz's second most embarrassing loss to a TV host in recent memory", poked Kimmel Monday.
After comparing Cruz's appearance to that of a blobfish after Game 7 of the Western Conference finals between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, Kimmel was challenged by the senator to a game of hoops, according to ABC13.
JIMMY KIMMEL: I immediately went online and googled how to guard a blobfish and then.
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.
Kimmel and Cruz likely still don't agree on a lot of things, as evidenced by the tough questions about policy that Kimmel lobbed at Cruz throughout the game, but they were still able to come together and deal with their beef in a positive way that benefited others. "I wanted to humiliate him in front of his people he loves most", the comedian jokingly continued.
'If I lose I'm not going home. Kimmel is playing for Texas Children's Hospital and Cruz is playing for Generation One, a Houston education charity. And in case you were wondering, there was no shortage of smack talk. "The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner's choice".
Kimmel accepted the challenge saying, 'I'll accept on one condition.
That idea didn't fly for Cruz, with him tweeting in response: "NOBODY wants to see that".
CRUZ: Under no circumstances will Kimmel dunk on me. "I still think you're a bad senator".
