Brian Elliott beats Harlem Globetrotter at 'bump'

Flames, legendary basketball team have some fun in Tampa @NHLdotcom

What started as a friendly game of knockout between the Calgary Flames turned into afternoon of high-intensity basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters.

And it wasn't a Globetrotter who won this battle. It was Flames goalie Brian Elliott who emerged victorious to the roar of his teammates.

Tweet from @NHLFlames: Moose!

After forward Troy Brouwer secured a victory in a Flames-only game of knockout, the Globetrotters came out to test Calgary's skills on the hardwood.

Tweet from @NHLFlames: The @Globies have taken to the court and are giving the boys some pointers!

The Globetrotters were at Amalie Arena for a stop on their 2017 World Tour on Wednesday, and the Flames, fresh off an overtime win in Nashville on Tuesday, will play the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday. 

Tweet from @NHLFlames: Thanks to the @Globies for hitting the court with the boys this afternoon!
