In earning their first win of the season in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the Washington Wizards matched the franchise record with 33 three-point attempts and set the franchise record with 18 made three-pointers in a 116-102 victory . And based on the way the season is progressing after four games, the Wizards might not be done adjusting the team record book as it relates to three-point shooting proficiency.

“That’s definitely one of our strong points, shooting threes,” said Bradley Beal, who started the Wizards’ record-setting night after catching a pass from John Wall and burying a three-pointer.

Through Wednesday’s games, the Wizards led the NBA in three-point attempts per game (28.5) and made three-pointers (12.3). They also ranked fourth in the league in three-point field goal percentage at 43 percent. At their current pace, the Wizards would finish the season with 2,337 three-point attempts and 1,009 three-pointers made, which would obliterate the old franchise records of 1,614 (2006-07, 2007-08) and 575 (2007-08).

Last season, the Wizards were 20th in attempts (18.2) and 18th in makes (6.6), ranking 10th in three-point percentage (36.5). This season, the Wizards haven’t attempted fewer than 25 or made fewer than nine in any game.

“That’s what we do,” Trevor Ariza said as the Wizards prepared to host Brooklyn on Friday at Verizon Center. “You’ve got to take open shots. Right now that’s the looks that we’ve been getting. We work on them every day, so we’re going to continue to take them.”

The three-point shot has become the weapon of choice for teams around the league in recent seasons. Advanced analytics have encouraged its usage because they produce more bang per possession than any other shot outside the paint. The Knicks set the NBA record for three-point attempts last season with 2,371.

The Wizards have gotten on board, realizing that the best way to take advantage of a speedy point guard like Wall is to surround him with players capable of hitting open looks from beyond. In the past two seasons, the Wizards have added Beal in the draft, traded for Ariza and signed Martell Webster and Al Harrington in free agency.
