There have been nine games played so far in the NBA Conference Finals and of those, the home team has won eight, showing again just how powerful home court advantage can be.
With the Finals right around the corner, Taco Bell is offering a tasty incentive for the visiting teams in the championship series, with the Mexican fast food chain handing out free Doritos Locos tacos as part of the “Steal a Game, Steal a Taco” promotion.
If the away team wins one of the first three games of the series fans can line up at their local Taco Bell on June 15 to collect their prize, and if the away victory comes in one of the final four games the free food will be handed out on June 21.
During the 2015 World Series, Taco Bell held a similar promotion called “Steal a Base, Steal a Breakfast” with fans earning an A.M. Crunchwrap when the Royals’ Lorenzo Cain swiped a bag during the series first game.
The company’s free food promotions have also extended outside of sports, with the chain putting a giant bullseye in the ocean in 2001 and offering all Americans a free taco if a piece of the Russian space station Mir hit it.
