Best Answer

"Assist" is usually a verb, synonym of "help." Sports reporters have started using it sometimes as a noun. In Basketball, for example, say Player A has the ball and his teammate Player B is moving into good position to make a shot. Player A passes the ball at the right time to Player B who then scores. Player B made the goal with an assist from Player A.
