A type of assist in the game of basketball that is counted to a player who passes the ball to a teammate in a way that leads to a score by a field goal that's a slam dunk, meaning that he or she was "assisting" in the dunk that results as a field goal. This is also counted as a regular assist, too.
Steve Nash or someone like him, I bet, get about 4 or 5 dunk assists a game. Maybe more.
