DraftKings showdown tournament picks for Sunday (February 28, 2021) night’s NBA game between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers
Welcome or welcome back, I hope you’re all doing well. I’m back at it with more NBA DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. Sunday night February 28th, the 23-11 Lakers take on the 19-15 Warriors at 8:00PM ET airing on ESPN.
Latest line has the Lakers -3 & the Over/Under is 221 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Lakers and the Over.
Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Lakers DFS DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Dennis Schroder, Lakers PG/SG (DK $6,800)
Schroder returned from a four game absence on Friday against Portland and scored 30 DK FPTS in 32 mins. Before that, he scored over 35 DK FPTS in 4 straight games in which he played over 30 mins. Also, this should be a fast paced game and possibly high scoring game.
For anyone new or whatever, this is basically my strategy for most large tournament showdowns. Taking a player who isn’t one of the top options at captain and hope they have a big game. It leaves enough DK $ to stack the rest of your team.
DraftKings Showdown Tourney Utility/Value Picks
Montrezl Harrell, Lakers C ($7,800)
Harrell is averaging 35 DK FPPG over his last four games with Anthony Davis out. His price hasn’t moved much and his ownership usually isn’t very high, at least in terms of showdowns.
Kevon Looney, Warriors C ($4,000)
Looney’s played over 20 mins in two out of the last three games. He’s scored over 10 DK FPTS in nine straight games. I don’t really like this pick but his ownership should be low and sometimes in tourneys you gotta make picks you don’t like, I think.
Markieff Morris, Lakers PF ($3,000)
Morris has played over 20 mins in 3 straight, where he’s averaged 17.5 FPPG. He’s also started the last 2 games and could again tonight with Davis still out.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
