Last season Karl-Anthony Towns averaged 25.1 points and 12.3 rebounds with the Minnesota Timberwolves. One way the Wolves were able to get Towns some possessions in isolation against his defender was by running a double screen ISO action.

The play diagram for this set can be seen below.


Here’s the play action in motion.

With the additions of Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson, it’ll be interesting to see how many more different looks Towns might be able to get in isolation with the new players that will draw away the attention of the defense.
