Before Wednesday’s Wizards-Cavs game, J.R. Smith held the record for youngest NBA player to reach 900 career 3-pointers.
With 4:31 left in the opening quarter. Bradley Beal caught a pass from Otto Porter and knocked down his 900th career triple.
The 25-year-old is a career 39 percent 3-point shooter. Through 13 games this season, Beal is stroking it at 34 percent, but scoring in a variety of ways this season with an average of over 22 points per game.
Washington is looking for its third consecutive win.
