The Wizards have unlocked Davis Bertans' full potential as a marksman this season, and it could lead to he Latvian forward joining Stephen Curry and James Harden in the NBA history books. 

Through 21 games, Bertans is averaging 14.4 points on 45 percent shooting and 44.8 percent from three on 8.3 attempts per game. Before this season, Bertans' career-high in attempts from deep was 4.4 last season. 

That's 78 made threes so far this season, which puts him in a tie for third place in the NBA along with Buddy Hield. He trails only Devontae Graham and James Harden. 

As of now, Bertans is on track to make 304 three-pointers by the end of the season. That would be the fifth-most makes in a season in NBA history and make him just the second player ever to eclipse 300 triples.

Curry has done it each of the last three seasons, including the year he hit 402 (!) threes in 2016. James Harden hit 378 threes last year and is well on track to do it again this season. 

It's hard to see Bertans slowing down at this point, but there's a reason only two players have ever accomplished this feat. He'll have a chance at adding to his impressive total Sunday night against the Clippers at 6 p.m. EST on NBC Sports Washington.
