Borrowing from answers in this Stack Overflow question, here's how you can get through a corporate (Microsoft) NTLM Proxy to clone git repositories from drupal.org:
cd into your drupal contrib directory (or wherever you want to put the repository).
$ export http_proxy="http://username:[email protected]:port/"
$ git clone http://git.drupal.org/project/[projectname]
Basically, you're first setting an environment variable to tell your shell to use an HTTP proxy, with your username/password combo. This variable will be used when making connections to git.drupal.org (and other services, like github). You can also set this in your
.bash_profile so it will be saved for future Terminal sessions.
If the above method doesn't work, you could do a couple other things - try setting up a local proxy on your own computer. You could use NTLMaps for linux/bsd/osx (I use this to share my proxied connection over WiFi to iOS devices), or use Authoxy for the Mac, and then authenticate against your own localhost proxy on a port of your choosing. This works better for more restrictive firewalls.
For example, if you use NTLMaps or Authoxy, you may be able to get away with just setting a git config variable:
$ git config --global http.proxy http://localhost:[port]
