Turns out you don't have to be a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, Golden State Warriors fan, or even a particularly big fan of basketball to be excited about the 2017 NBA Finals. That's because the Warriors' road game win over the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the tournament on June 7 triggered Taco Bell's nationwide Doritos Locos Taco giveaway. And, well, everyone's a fan of free tacos.
It's official: Taco Bell is giving everyone in America one free Doritos Locos Taco, all thanks to the Warriors' 118-113 win over the Cavaliers. Participating T-Bell locations all across the country will hand out the free junk food-taco hybrids on Tuesday, June 13, from 2pm to 6pm. Get your damn Fire Sauce ready.
What to Watch Before and After the Super Bowl
Taco Bell promised free tacos for "everyone in America" if the away team wins -- or "steals" -- a game on the home team's court during this year's NBA Finals, as part of the chain's annual "Steal a Game, Steal a Taco" promotion. Interestingly, it was the Golden State Warriors who won everyone free tacos last year when they beat none other than the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4.
All said, if your team ends up winning the NBA Finals (update: it was the Warriors), then you'll have celebratory champion tacos to enjoy. If you team ends up losing (update: sorry, Cavs fans), well, at least you've got a free way to eat your feelings.
