Bradley Beal just needed one 3-pointer against the Bucks to make history.
That's because the Wizards' star shooting guard entered the Monday night game in Milwaukee with 699 career 3-point makes.
With his first make, Beal not only eclipsed the 700 3-point make plateau, but became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 700 3-point makes.
The St. Louis native's accomplishment on Monday night broke the record previously set by Cleveland's J.R. Smith, who accomplished the feat during the 2010-2011 season, his sixth season as an NBA pro.
Like Smith, Beal eclipsed the 700 3-point makes plateau in his sixth season, but Beal entered his sixth season having played in 25 less games than Smith. Beal however, entered his sixth season with 44 more 3-point makes than Smith did.
Only five players have reached the 700 made 3-pointers plateau before their 25th birthday.
