Before this season began, Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet set a record by signing the biggest contract for an undrafted free agent in NBA history: four years, $85 million.

On Tuesday night, VanVleet added two other records to his name by scoring 54 points in Toronto's 123-108 victory at the Orlando Magic -- the most ever by an undrafted player in NBA history, surpassing Moses Malone's record of 53 -- as well as besting DeMar DeRozan's single-game franchise record of 52.

"Unbelievable. I'm very humbled and honored to be in the same sentence as both of those guys," said VanVleet, who finished the game 17-for-23 from the field, 11-for-14 from the 3-point line and 9-for-9 from the foul line. He also had 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks in 37 minutes.
