JIMMY KIMMEL filmed his one-on-one basketball game against Senator TED CRUZ on Saturday.  And the highlights will be shown on TONIGHT’S episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.

But SPOILER ALERT. . . we know what happens.

Cruz defeated Kimmel 11 to 9 in the so-called ‘Blobfish Basketball Classic,’ which was held on Ted’s home turf . . . Texas Southern University’s arena in Houston.

In a teaser video, Kimmel takes a shot at Cruz, saying, quote, “Did you spend more time this week practicing basketball than trying to get those kids out of that detention center?”  Ted responded by mocking Hollywood.

If you don’t watch “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, this whole thing started when Jimmy mocked Ted’s facial expressions at a Houston Rockets game.  So Cruz challenged Kimmel to a game of one-on-one.  He said, quote, “The loser gives $5,000 to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”

Ted played for Generation One, which focuses on early childhood education, and Kimmel played for the Texas Children’s Hospital.  In the end, they both pledged $10,000 to their opponent’s charity.

Afterward, Cruz said that the real winners were the charities.
