Jimmy Kimmel might have lost a challenge to Ted Cruz but that didn't stop the TV host from throwing one last jab the senator.

UNIDENTIFIED PERSON: It's American versus Canadian, baller versus blobfish, Kimmel versus Cruz - the blobfish basketball classic.

Jimmy a couple weeks back poked fun at Ted for essentially jinxing the Houston Rockets during the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Lieu acknowledged universities can use race as a factor in admissions, citing the Supreme Court case Fisher v. Attorneys for Harvard called the internal review "incomplete, preliminary and based on limited inputs".

"I have no actual moves", Kimmel said before hitting the court.

A matchup between the two has been brewing since Cruz tweeted a picture of himself courtside for Game 7 Western Conference Finals.

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. "I wanted to humiliate him in front of his people he loves most", the comedian jokingly continued.

I'm just going to live on the [Houston] streets, ' he added. You have besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets. The two agreed the real victor of Saturday's game was charity.

Trump Claims Has 'Largely Solved' North Korean Nuclear Crisis
Trump has said he trusts Kim to follow through as the two countries negotiate dismantling North Korea's nuclear program. "He met. He can now call me if he has any difficulty; I can now call him. "We're very close to getting it started", Trump said .

Hours before tipoff, the late-night talk show host - confident and sporting a spanking new pair of red James Harden model Adidas sneakers - admitted the spectacle wouldn't be about technique or athleticism, only saying that he is "good at defense". Kimmel is preparing to drill Cruz on policy whilst on the court. "I still think you're a awful senator".
