Iman Shumpert wowed the judges on Dancing with the Stars Monday night, so much so that he garnered a perfect score of 40.
For the show’s Halloween-themed episode, Shumpert and his partner Daniella Karagach performed a contemporary, acrobatic number to “I Got 5 on It (Tethered Mix)” by Luniz feat. Michael Marshall.
Horror fans were able to immediately pinpoint their costumes and themes as the “tethered” twin images from Jordan Peele’s 2019 horror thriller, Us.
The duo secured the edge over their competition with some intense stunts. Shumpert twirled Karagach around by only her feet, ran across the dancefloor on his hands and feet, and lifted his partner to stand straight on his shoulders.
“To finally get a chance at something so challenging, it feels like a huge accomplishment,” Shumpert told ET online. “I’m just really impressed she had the bravery to come up with that dance.”
Shumpert’s performance even wowed some of his NBA associates who managed to catch the performance, and they Tweeted their response. Lebron James was impressed:

And Dwyane Wade asserted that Shumpert is not one to play with.
