NBA Playoffs 2012 Food Fight: Final Round

Which NBA team’s hometown treats are tops?
Onion burgers were invented in Oklahoma.
Tucker's Onion Burgers

Philippe's French dip sandwich is world famous.

With only two teams remaining in the NBA Playoffs — Miami and Oklahoma — the NBA Food Fight is also down to two contenders. The Daily Meal has tallied the results of the third round of the NBA Food Fight. The Philadelphia 76ers’ cheesesteak and hoagies and Oklahoma City Thunder’s chicken-fried steak and onion burger have come out on top.

While the results of round one of the NBA Food Fight mimicked those of the NBA Playoffs, round two and round three of the NBA Food Fight were not as predictable.

While the Miami Heat advanced to the NBA Finals, Miami was eliminated in round two of the NBA Playoffs 2012 Food Fight. The Indiana Pacers’ pork tenderloin sandwich toasted Miami’s Del Monte fruits and vegetables with 96 percent of the votes cast in favor of the crispy, juicy pork sandwich.
In the three-way culinary contest in round three, the Philly cheesesteak and hoagies and Oklahoma’s chicken-fried steak and onion burger pounded the Indiana Pacers’ pork tenderloin sandwich, eliminating the juicy sandwich from the competition.
