Fred VanVleet was on fire Tuesday night, setting a new Toronto Raptors franchise record for number of points scored in a single game.

VanVleet scored a whopping 54 points in the Raptors’ 123-108 win over the Orlando Magic.

The previous Raptors record was set by DeMar DeRozan, when he scored 52 points in a game in 2018. DeRozan tweeted congratulations to his former teammate following the game, while also sending some friendly shade towards his buddy Kyle Lowry.

VanVleet also set a new NBA record, surpassing Moses Malone for most points scored by an undrafted player, since the NBA/ABA merger in 1976.
