The 2011–12 PBA Philippine Cup Finals is the best-of-7 championship series of the 2011-12 PBA Philippine Cup, and the conclusion of the conference's playoffs. The Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters and the Powerade Tigers played for the 104th championship contested by the league. The series was held from January 20 to 29, 2012.

This is the first time that Talk 'N Text and Powerade faced each other in the finals, since the 2003 PBA All-Filipino Cup, in which Talk 'N Text won the series in six games.

Talk 'N Text won the championship series, four games to one, becoming the third team, and first since 1985, to successfully defend the All-Filipino crown.[1][2]

Def. Barako Bull, 81–79 Quarterfinals Def. B-Meg, 97–88, 131–123
Def. Petron Blaze, 4–3 Semifinals Def. Rain or Shine, 4–3

Talk 'N Text finished the elimination round tied with the B-Meg Llamados for first place. Since Talk 'N Text has an inferior quotient against B-Meg, the team got the #2 seed but still got the twice-to-beat advantage entering the quarterfinals.[3] They defeated the 7th seeded Barako Bull Energy in one game in order to advance to the semifinals,[4] where they faced the Petron Blaze Boosters, the team that they faced during the 2011 PBA Governors Cup Finals and denied them their opportunity for a Grand Slam.[5] Talk 'N Text defeated Petron Blaze in seven games, becoming the third team to win a best-of-seven playoff series coming from a 1-3 deficit.[6]

Powerade on the other hand was seeded eight (due to an inferior quotient against Barako Bull), with a twice-to-beat disadvantage going to the quarterfinals.[3] They defeated the first seeded B-Meg Llamados in two games to advance to the semifinals.[7] In the next round, they faced the fifth-seeded Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. Powerade won in seven games, making them the first team in PBA history to become the lowest seeded team to advance to the finals.[8]

With 3.3 seconds left in the game, and leading the game 121-118, Talk 'N Text has the possession and a chance to close the game. Ranidel de Ocampo miscalculated the lead pass to teammate Larry Fonacier, who was heavily defended by Gary David. JV Casio was able to pick up the loose ball then sank a three point shot to send the game into overtime.[13] During the overtime period, De Ocampo was able to make up his mistake in regulation, scoring the crucial shots in overtime, sealing the game and a commanding 3-0 lead in the finals series.[14]

Earlier in the game, De Ocampo was slapped with a flagrant foul (penalty 1) after he swung an elbow to Sean Anthony after securing a rebound.[15] Anthony's eyebrow needed 10 stitches to stop the bloody gash. De Ocampo was fined P20,000 by the commissioner's office after the incident.
