Davis Bertans unlocked his true potential this season with the Wizards as one of the NBA's most feared sharpshooters, and now he's placed himself in an exclusive club in franchise history. 

Against the Knicks Tuesday night, Bertans became the third Wizards player ever to make 200 threes in a single season, joining Bradley Beal and Gilbert Arenas. 

Beal achieved the milestone in 2016-17 when he made 223 threes at a 40.4% clip and last season when he hit 209 triples at 35.1 percent. Arenas did it twice himself in 2004-05 (205, 36.5%) and 2006-07 (205, 35.1%). 

Bertans is at 200 and counting and was shooting over 42% from three entering Tuesday night. With 18 games remaining, he could very well set the new franchise record for threes made in a season and shoot better than Beal or Arenas ever did in their 200-three campaigns. 

If only Bertans didn't miss nine games in the middle of the season with a quad injury. He was scorching the nets and was on pace to hit 300 threes for the year. Only two players have ever hit 300 triples before: Steph Curry and James Harden.

He picked a good time to realize his true powers from beyond the arc, too. Bertans is set to hit free agency this summer and considering the Wizards refused to trade him at the deadline, he holds plenty of leverage to get himself a nice contract.
