Basketball? Dancing with the Stars? War Games? What is This?

New Zealand's national basketball team has a pre-game tradition.

They form two lines on the court, facing the opposing team, and perform at haka dance.

It's an ancestral war dance, courtesy of New Zealand's Maoris. And while it's motivational for the performers, it can be pretty darn intimidating to the opponents.

Just look at the faces of the Team USA players who witnessed it up close and personal on Tuesday during the World Cup of Basketball.

 

Not to worry. The intimidation was fleeting. USA won, 98 - 71.
