Jimmy Fallon Attempts To Take On The Harlem Globetrotters In A Game Of Basketball, But There's Just No Contest

Close, but ...

Jimmy Fallon and The Roots may know how to work together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but how would they handle working together in a whole new kind of ball game? 

Fallon and The Roots wanted to find out, so they decided to challenge the Harlem Globetrotters, the world-famous basketball team with a tradition of "ball handling wizardy, basketball artistry, one-of-a-kind family entertainment," their website explains.

Of course, Fallon and his team were no match for the Harlem Globetrotters' game, complete with show-stopping tricks, incredible dunks, and flawless team plays.

Just at the start of the game, one of the Harlem Globetrotters players faked out Fallon by pretending to throw the ball to him before it quickly spins back into the athlete's hand. 

And it's all downhill from there.
