As you already know, Ted Cruz put a beat down on Jimmy Kimmel in a game of one-on-one charity basketball where both politics and scoring were on the menu.
The game, which was played on Saturday night, finally aired tonight for all of us to see. Of course they didn’t air the entire game, but to be honest, I think they got the best parts of it.
And you can watch it below:
As you can see, both men were pretty much on empty by the end of the game. But it was so satisfying to see Cruz drop the winning shot!
Of course Kimmel was rude to Senator Cruz as you would have expected from a late night liberal host who was putting this on his show. But Ted came out on top in more ways than one in my opinion. He not only raised over $80k raised for two Texas charities, but he won the game. And he didn’t let Kimmel bait him into saying something that he might have regretted. All in all it was a good win for Cruz.
UPDATE: Here’s a few photos from the end of the game:
