Winning on and off the court.

Former NBA champion Shumpert just stunned fans and his basketball colleagues alike with a freaky dance routine for the "Horror Night" of the ABC celebrity dancing show, Dancing With The Stars.

Donned in the signature red jumpsuit and scissors à la The Untethered, Iman and his partner, professional dancer Daniella Karagach, treated viewers with a contemporary dance that perfectly fit the style of the Jordan Peele-helmed cult favorite.

The pair crawled, tossed, and performed gravity-defying moves that earned them 10/10 scores from all four judges that night. At one point, Shumpert held Karagach by the legs and spun her around in a truly killer sequence, and placed her atop his 6-foot-4 frame before catching her in mid-air, They ended the routine with a creepy Untethered-esque glare at the judges.

Other Halloween-inspired dances of the night include Jojo Siwa's Pennywise routine from It, Olivia Jade's The Purge-inspired anarchy dance, and The Miz' Hellraiser performance - but Iman and Daniella stole the spotlight that night.

Basketball players from Lebron James, who was Shumpert's former NBA teammate, to professional dancers, soon took to social media to send their praises to the NBA star.
