DraftKings DFS showdown picks for tonight’s (May 30, 2021) NBA playoff game 4 between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers
Welcome all, I hope your having a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. I’m back at it with NBA DraftKings Showdown picks for the Dallas Mavericks at Los Angeles Clippers opening round playoff game 4. The game takes place tonight, Sunday May 30th, airing on ESPN at 9:30PM ET. The Clippers currently lead the series 2-1.
I went back and forth between doing straight up showdown picks and showdown tourney picks. I’m just sticking with my favorite picks overall, and I’ll mention my thoughts about tourney players, ownership and whatever else.
Mavericks at Clippers DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Kawhi Leonard, Clippers SF (DK $11,600)
Leonard is averaging 57 DK FPPG over the first 3 playoff games. He’ll be highly owned but I think he’s the best play at captain.
As far as the other top players for captain, I also like the other obvious ones. Paul George and Luka Doncic, who’s averaging a ridiculous 68 DK FPPG in the playoffs. He’s just SO expensive, it’s tough to make a lineup with him at captain. (He’s currently questionable but I’m guessing he’ll play) And I’d take a shot with Tim Hardaway Jr in a tourney.
Nicolas Batum, Clippers SF/PF ($3,800)
Batum has played over 27 minutes in two of three playoff games, averaging 19 DK FPPG. He’s kind of a boring pick, but sometimes you need those. I also like (currently probable) Maxi Kleber in that price range.
Willie Cauley-Stein, Mavericks C ($1,800)
If you go with Luka at captain, you’re going to need some cheap players. WCS is one of them, he’s averaging a solid 15.25 DK FPPG over his last two.
Some other cheap players I like just for tourneys are Josh Richardson, Ivan Zubac and Patrick Beverley.
