With a convincing 115-91 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night, the Toronto Raptors tied their franchise record for most wins in a season with 49.

All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan led all scorers with 23 points, while Patrick Patterson came off the bench to drop 16 points as the Raptors redeemed themselves for Friday's loss to the Houston Rockets.
