DeMar DeRozan poured in 26 points with six dimes to beat the Hawks for the Toronto Raptors 50th win of the season to set a new franchise wins record.
“It means everything to me,” DeRozan said. “This is where I’ve been my whole career. I’ve been through the tough times. Now to be, what do you call it, the winningest Raptor of all time and now to break the franchise record three years in a row, it definitely means a lot to me. You can never take that away. When (reporters) bring up things that I’ve done here, reality really hits me, honestly, because you really don’t think about all of the things you’ve (done) or things you’ve accomplished.”
