TORONTO - The Toronto Raptors have added another Atlantic Division banner to the rafters of the Air Canada Centre.

The Raptors unfurled the banner prior to the tip-off Monday against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks.

They'd only won the division title in once before — in 2006-07, which was also the last time they made the playoffs.

Raptors all-star DeMar DeRozan addressed the crowd, saying "We want to thank you guys for the support throughout the whole season, and we want you guys to help us unfurl the banner as division champs."

DeRozan counted down 3-2-1 as the banner dropped to fireworks and cheers from the fans.

The night marked the final regular-season home game for Toronto, who cliched the division title on Friday.
