Does your key have a passphrase? If so, you'll need to enter SSH key passphrase.

the pass phrase is the password for git?

No; the SSH client on your local machine needs the passphrase to be able to use the key for authentication with Bitbucket. The prompt for the passphrase comes from your local machine, not Bitbucket (and as a result, the passphrase isn't even sent to Bitbucket).

With respect to 'git' in the clone URL, Bitbucket doesn't use it for authentication. It only looks at the SSH public key that's used. If the key matches the key that you've uploaded, you're successfully authenticated.
