DraftKings DFS showdown tournament picks for Thursday (April 15, 2021) night’s NBA game between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers

What’s up all, I’m back at it again with more NBA DraftKings showdown tourney picks. Tonight at 10PM ET, it’s the (29-26) Boston Celtics heading to Los Angeles to take on the (34-21) Lakers who are playing without Anthony Davis or Lebron James.

Jason Tatum is must-start for me and Jaylen Brown is close. Alright, check out the line and then on to the picks.

The latest line has Boston -6 and the Over/Under is 212. If I were a betting man, I’d take Celtics and the over.

Celtics at Lakers DraftKings Showdown Tourney Captain Pick

Dennis Schroder, Lakers PG ($7,400)

Schroder has been rolling for the last month or so. He’s averaging just under 30 DK FPPG on the season and 36 DK FPPG over his last eleven. It’s not the best matchup, but he’s been getting a ton of opportunities with AD and Lebron out. Last game he shot the ball 19 times, he could have a monster game one of these days and maybe it’s today.

He’s currently listed questionable on DraftKings along with many other Lakers. But he’s actually probable, as are the rest of them.

Utility/Value Picks

Kemba Walker, Celtics PG ($8,000)

Walker has been really good and incredibly consistent, scoring over 25 DK PTS in 14 straight games. He’s scored over 42 DK FPTS in two out of his last three and here he’s facing the Lakers without their big 2.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lakers SF ($4,800)

KCP is usually hit or miss, but he’s has been playing consistently well with Lebron out. He’s scored over 20 DK PTS in five straight now, including a game vs Miami with 39 DK FPTS.

Wesley Matthews, Lakers SG/SF ($2,200)

Matthews is only averaging 10 DK FPG this season. But he’s scored over 15 FPTS in four of his last six games, he has a little upside and is really cheap.

Payton Pritchard, Celtics PG ($1,000)

If you need someone at the minimum price, I’d give Pritchard a look. He’s played at least 10 minutes in ten out of eleven games, including two games with over 22 DK FPTS. I think this could be a Celtics blowout and maybe he gets more playing time.
