A Curl Cut is when a player who was moving in one direction alters their trajectory in a curl towards the basket. It's often done with off the ball screens.

In the example below,O3 recognizes that the defender is trying to chase over the top of the screen. Instead of continuing to the top of the key, the player makes the curl cut to the basket for a layup.
