DeMar DeRozan threw down a poster dunk over Kyle Singler during Toronto's 116-107 road victory over Detroit on Sunday.

With a little more than three minutes remaining in the game and the Raptors leading 105-99, DeRozan sized up Andre Drummond at the top of the key. Working his way towards the free throw line with a series of dribbles, DeRozan burst past Drummond to the right and turned the corner headed for the hoop. Seeing the drive develop, Singler came across the paint to offer rim-protecting help defense.

DeRozan attacked the hoop as if Singler was invisible, punching a right-handed dunk over the top of Singler's two-handed contesting effort. There even appeared to be some mid-air contact between the two players, but that didn't stop DeRozan from completing a thunderous finish. That's about as emphatic as an exclamation point can get.

The victory improved Toronto's record to 47-33, tying the franchise's record for most wins in a season. DeRozan led the Raptors with a game-high 30 points (on 10-for-19 shooting), three assists and one rebound. Kyle Lowry added 28 points (on 9-for-18 shooting), seven assists and two rebounds in the win.

Greg Monroe led the Pistons with 23 points (on 8-for-13 shooting) and 10 rebounds. Drummond added 14 points (on 5-for-9 shooting), 17 rebounds and three blocks in a losing effort.
