Freestanding tub faucet installation

I have this faucet that I'm about to install but not sure what fittings to use on the supply side. The risers terminate in a 1/2" NPS thread so I need to go from 1/2" NPS to 1/2" copper. NPT would be a no brainer but NPS has me a bit stumped.

I could use a flex hose and shutoff (or 3/8 adapter) like one would do with a sink or basin faucet but since this is enclosed under the floor a more permanent solution would be more appropriate. Also, I think that the hose and shutoff may restrict the water flow too much.

How would the connection normally be made in this situation?
