'Iso' stands for 'isolation': is a play in which one side of the floor on the offensive end is cleared out so that one player can get given the ball and "isolated" from the rest of the team defense so that he can attack his man one-on-one . Isolations can happen in the post , on the wing , or even sometimes at the top ( you usually see that at the end of quarters, when the team goes into a spread, four-corners set so that the man at the top can break his guy down off the dribble and either take it to the rim , pull up for the jumper, or draw another defender and dish the ball. )
