For the second straight year, the Warriors will meet the Trail Blazers in the postseason.
And it was set up in dramatic fashion.
Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook, who earlier in Sunday's game in Denver broke Oscar Robertson's single-season triple-double record, hit a game-winning 3-pointer as time expired to lift the Thunder past the Nuggets 106-105.
The loss eliminated the Nuggets from playoff contention and allowed Portland to clinch the 8th and final spot in the West.
The Warriors won all four meetings with the Blazers this season:
Nov. 1, 2016 in Portland: Warriors 127, Blazers 104
Dec. 17, 2016 in Oakland: Warriors 135, Blazers 90
Jan. 4, 2017 in Oakland: Warriors 125, Blazers 117
Jan. 29, 2017 in Portland: Warriors 113, Blazers 111
Last year, the Warriors defeated the Blazers in five games in the Western Conference Semifinals.
The NBA playoffs begin next weekend.
Westbrook's game-winner finished off a 50-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist performance, his record-setting 42nd triple-double of the season.
