Sunday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
About the Double Assist for the First Pass of Two

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
I have often wondered about the awarding of assists in basketball.
In hockey, it's pretty much direct and preserved.

But after watching European basketball for over 20 years, I'm still not sure what actually qualifies as an assist in a basketball game.

And, quite frankly, I don't think those responsible for keeping live-time stats during Euroleague games know for sure, either.

Then, what about a fast break basket where the pass is moved up the floor to a wide open player that catches (at just inside the half) and takes 3-4 dribbles before laying it in ? I say assist but some of the definitions say no assist.

In fact, awarding assists in basketball might be the most controversial stat kept. ..."

In my opinion, and in this manner works the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System, we must be able to give two assists - like in hockey - on one play.

As said in the last exposition in the current Annual eBA Clinic, "many times, a point guard gives a great pass, and another player makes a pass that leads to the basket". The first pass should get some credit , because it can be more important than the second pass.

On the other hand, a great pass that leads to the shooter being fouled is not generally credited as an assist, and it should be, or no?
