Toronto Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan has credited hard work from coaching staff and players as his side became tied with the franchise record for regular season wins on Sunday.

The Raptors defeated the Detroit Pistons 116-107 at the Palace Of Auburn Hills, as DeRozan shone with 30 points on the night.

"It definitely means a lot," DeRozan told reporters after the game. "If you really sit down and look at it, that's big, to be tied with the franchise record and have a chance to break it.

"We've come a long way. A lot of people wouldn't have counted us to be in the position we're in now. It's definitely a credit to our hard work, both the players and the coaching staff."

The franchise record currently stands at 47 wins in a regular season, with Toronto needing one win from their final games to set a new tally.
