Bradley Beal sets Wizards/Bullets franchise record for career three-pointers

Urban Marketing Group Staff



Bradley Beal made history on Saturday night.

With 4:42 left in the fourth quarter against the Raptors, Beal made his 869th career three-pointer and in doing so passed Gilbert Arenas for first all-time in Wizards/Bullets franchise history.

Beal, just 25, now tops a list that includes Antawn Jamison (646) in third and John Wall (489) and Chris Whitney (489) tied for fourth. For Arenas, Jamison and Whitney, those are only the threes they made in a Wizards uniform.

Beal set the new mark just two games into his seventh NBA season. He has made at least 100 threes in each of the past five years. That is also a franchise record.

Beal is likely to set a high bar when it’s all said and done. He is under contract with the Wizards through the 2020-21 season and is on a historic pace.

Only eight players made more threes through their first six NBA seasons than Beal. That list includes some of the best three-point marksmen of all-time like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Ray Allen.

A NOAA researcher is concerned for some of DC’s poorest now that the results are in from a D.C. heat study. He and a group of citizen scientists surveyed the District’s “Heat Islands” last August and they match up with some of DC’s poorest neighborhoods.

WASHINGTON — In August, a team of citizen scientists mapped-out which DC neighborhoods are most dangerously hot when temperatures rise, and after examining the results, they’re concerned for DC’s poorest residents.

After hours of mapping-out more than 75,000 temperature data points, the result is a district heat map showing Washington, D.C.’s Urban Heat Island EffectThe date surveyed was August 28, 2018.

The citizen scientists drove the same route (aka traverse) three different times the day they measured.

They found a striking temperature difference between certain parts of town.

Most of Northwest D.C. stayed in the 84-94 degree zone.

On the other side, a large swath of Northeast, the National Mall area and parts of Southeast, like Anacostia, hit 94–102-degrees.

David Herring says one of the most surprising and significant finding was the potential 17-degree temperature difference.

“It might be 86 degrees in one part of the city, it could be as hot as 103 degrees in other parts of the city during exactly the same time,” said Herring.
