Banana Cut

What is Banana Cut?

In basketball, a sudden, quick movement by a player in a broad, curving path across the court.

Sporting Charts explains Banana Cut

A banana cut is the same as a cut, but instead of cutting in a straight line, the player in question moves in an arc, either towards or away from the basket. This is usually done based on deployment of the opposing team's defense, and is sometimes preferable for certain offenses, especially if there is no clear, straight path across the court. The banana cut can be more effective as it does not immediately give away the intent of the player, who is either drawing the defense away or attempting to get open for a pass.
