AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) DeMar DeRozan scored 14 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors tied a franchise record for victories with a 116-107 win over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday.

The Raptors (47-33) had already clinched the Atlantic Division, and the victory over Detroit was their 10th in 14 games. Toronto has now reached the 47-win mark for the third time. The Raptors went 47-35 in 2001 and 2007.

Kyle Lowry scored 28 points for Toronto before fouling out with 5:51 remaining.

Andre Drummond had 14 points and 17 rebounds for the Pistons in the final home game of their dismal season. Detroit's Josh Smith missed a fourth straight game with tendinitis in his left knee.
