When is it an assist in the following cases ?
1 - Team A is passing the ball around the perimeter and A2 ( the last player to touch the ball ) makes a 3 from the corner . Does A1, the teammate who passed him the ball and asked the ball in return, get an assist ?

2 - A3 inbounds the ball ( after a made opponent basket ) passing to his teammate A4 an all-the-court pass away . A4 ( behind the defense ) dribbles once and then dunks the ball. Does A3 get an assist ?

3 - A5 is dribbling around outside, he drops the ball into A7 in the post. A7 dribbles a bit ( dribble of a center ), tries to shake his defender, succeeds and scores. Does A5 get an assist ?

Case 1: Without any doubts, record an assist to A1. If A2 miss the shot and A1 was in a very good shooting position, therefore, this is a 'Potential Assist' from A2.

Case 2: Without any doubts, record an assist to A3. Certainly, from an outbounds situation there is no possibility of 'Potential Assist' if A4 misses the shot, but it is case of 'Missed Assist'.

Case 3: We have to see the play, generally the live statistics does not records at all an assist in this case. The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System , applies the following rule: if A7 is well covered and gets himself open, then no assist. In all the other circumstances, we record A5 with an assist.
