To help adjust to his offense's fast pace, specifically making decisions at that pace, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said they practice with a 5-second half-court clock and an 18-second clock. They also do 5-on-0 drills and work on understanding angles.

To start the first training camp practice, Celtics coach Brad Stevens told his players to operate at 30 percent speed. They, of course, launched in full throttle. "We did like a 5-on-5 kind of not live breakdown before they even stretched and I said, ‘Go 30 percent, it's a walkthrough.' If that was 30 percent we're going to be able to fly around," said Stevens. "I think it was just a misjudging of what 30 percent is but they were flying early on in practice."
