Davis Bertans has a 62% accuracy from 3-point distance in December

Davis Bertans

San Antonio Spurs forward Davis Bertans has been quietly getting it done for the Spurs this past month. He has been red hot from three-point territory, and according to a certain Redditor, the 26-year-old is currently knocking down over 60 percent of his attempts from deep for the month of December.

In 10 appearances for the Spurs this month, the 6-foo-10 forward is currently averaging 2.7 three-pointers per ballgame on just 4.3 attempts. That’s good for 62.8 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

On top of his efficiency from deep, Bertans is also averaging 10.2 points (on an amazing 57.9 percent shooting), 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 Steals, and 0.5 blocks in 20.9 minutes of action for the month of December.

Incidentally, Bertans missed two games earlier this month to attend to the birth of his child, and it appears that parenthood has done wonders in motivating the third-year man.

Bertans signed a two-year extension with the Spurs last summer to the tune of $14 million, and he is currently proving that he is worth every single penny of his deal.

Bertans has successfully elevated his game in his third year for San Antonio, and is currently averaging career-high marks in points (7.8), field goal shooting (50.3 percent), three-pointers (1.9), rebounds (2.4), and assists (2.9).

It is also no coincidence that the Spurs have been great this December, with the team winning eight out of their 12 games this month. Bertans has established himself as an important role player on the team, and it appears that his rest of season outlook will remain to be the same.
