Paynt Points: What Do Those Stats Mean?

Jake dissects Karl-Anthony Towns and pull-up shooting statistics.

In the Paynt Points mini-series What Do Those Stats Mean, host Jake Paynting will break down three intriguing statistics and give them context within the Minnesota Timberwolves season.

This week, the focus is on Karl-Anthony Towns’ newfangled role within Minnesota’s offense and how, while his touches per game are down, he is getting the ball in much different ways and within a much more optimized role, and, secondly, why Minnesota’s humongous drop-off in pull-up shooting since D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley were sidelined makes successful offense borderline impossible and just how good the pair were shooting when they were playing.
