- The Warriors have a "concentration drill" which tests how a player psychologically reacts to pressure. The drill is to make 10 shots in a row from a certain spot, and the pressure builds as the player gets to the last few shots. Keith Smart watches how the players react to that pressure and use it to judge how they might react in a game. Some players tense up towards the last few shots, some players concentrate more, etc.
