The jokes were so prevalent that “Sweet Chin Music” even started trending on Twitter.
Celtics fans meanwhile continue to publicize the “War on Theis,” which is their way of saying he gets called for too many fouls. The Celtics big man was even defended on the Game 5 broadcast by analyst Stan Van Gundy.
