If Nick Foles Isn't the Next Joe Montana, He Could Still Be the Next Pablo Picasso

If Nick Foles Isn't the Next Joe Montana, He Could Still Be the Next Pablo Picasso

Nick Foles took the country by storm on Monday night when he stepped in for an injured Mike Vick in front of a national audience on ESPN and proceeded to throw darts against the New England Patriots and their second and third teamers. But if Foles doesn't turn out to be the next Joe Montana, he could still make a run at being the next Pablo Picasso.

Perhaps you've seen these drawings on sports cards done by NFL rookies this season for the Panini America card company -- Andrew Luck's Lucas Oil Stadium that auctioned for $1,500 garnered quite a bit of attention -- but other stories failed to notice the genius of Eagles' backup-superstar-in-the-waiting Nick Foles.

SB Nation did a ranking of sorts of all of the rookie's works of art, but clearly overlooked Foles' strokes like so many other NFL team's who passed him up in April's draft.

Look at the use of those blacks and greys, the white space, accentuated nicely with the green text. The "Fly Eagles" is a bit tough to decipher, leaving it up the viewer's interpretation.

You can see more NFL rookie artwork on baseball cards here, but like in football and life, it doesn't get much better than Nick Foles.

Watch: Nik Stauskas sings 10-9-8-76ers song after win over Raptors

The Sixers have been enjoying their anthem quite a bit lately.

After taking down the Raptors on Wednesday night, 94-89, the Sixers have now won seven of their last nine games. That's pretty crazy considering they won just 10 times out of the entire 82-game season in 2015-16.

So the Sixers and their fans are soaking up this victorious stretch — as they should.

Nik Stauskas was especially doing that while heading to the locker room with a win over the Eastern Conference's second-best team. It looks like "Sauce" loves the 10-9-8-76ers jam, played after each victory.

Per CSN's John Clark ...

If you're not familiar with the song, check it out here. It's really catchy and you'll have it stuck in your head following one listen.

Best of NBA: Harden's 38-points fuels Rockets past Bucks

Best of NBA: Harden's 38-points fuels Rockets past Bucks

HOUSTON -- James Harden had 38 points, eight assists and six rebounds, and the Houston Rockets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 111-92 on Wednesday night.

Harden drilled a straightaway 3-pointer with six minutes left to give Houston a 13-point lead and shimmied his shoulders down the court in a celebratory dance as the Bucks called timeout.

After losing three of four, the Rockets regained their form while improving to 17-4 at home this season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 32 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and three blocks for Milwaukee (see full recap).

Rose powers slumping Knicks past Celtics 117-106
BOSTON -- Derrick Rose matched his season high with 30 points, and the slumping New York Knicks beat the Boston Celtics 117-106 on Wednesday night.

New York played without injured starters Kristaps Porzingis and Joakim Noah, but Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Willy Hernangomez each scored 17 points to help make up for their absence. It was just the third win in 14 games for the Knicks.

Isaiah Thomas led Boston with 39 points, his 13th time this season with 30 or more points. Jae Crowder added 21 for the Celtics, who lost for only the fourth time in 17 games.

Al Horford, Boston's big free-agent acquisition during the summer, had five points on 2-of-14 shooting. He was 1 for 8 on 3-point attempts.

Boston closed to 97-96 on Jaylen Brown's two free throws with just under eight minutes to play, but Justin Holiday and Courtney Lee nailed 3-pointers 29 seconds apart, pushing New York's lead back to seven. Rose then capped an 8-0 spree by putting in his own miss after Thomas missed a jumper -- his seventh straight shot that was off (see full recap).

Home cooking: Wiz top Grizz 104-101, 13th win in row in DC
WASHINGTON -- A vastly different team at home, the Wizards won their 13th consecutive game in Washington by edging the Memphis Grizzlies 104-101 Wednesday night behind two late layups from John Wall, who finished with 25 points and 13 assists.

James Ennis III missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the buzzer for Memphis.

The Wizards are just 4-13 on the road but now 18-6 at home, where they've compiled their longest winning streak since a 15-game run in the 1988-89 season.

Washington never trailed and led by as many as 19 points in the first half, then held on after a 10-0 run by Memphis made it a two-point game with 2 1/2 minutes left. That's when Wall took over, scoring on consecutive drives (see full recap).

Walker, Hibbert lead Hornets past Blazers 107-85
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Kemba Walker scored 23 points, Roy Hibbert provided a huge boost off the bench, and the Charlotte Hornets stopped a five-game slide with a 107-85 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Nicolas Batum added 17 points for the Hornets, who limited the Trail Blazers to 35 percent shooting and snapped an eight-game streak of allowing at least 100 points. But it was the 7-foot-2 Hibbert who stole the show.

Hibbert, who came in averaging 5.2 points per game, had a season-high 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting.

Damian Lillard scored 21 points and C.J. McCollum had 18 for Portland, which has lost three straight and 16 of 22 since Dec. 5 (see full recap).
