Russell Westbrook capped off the regular season in the most Russell Westbrook way possible - a triple-double and a win.

Playing without Paul George against a shorthanded Milwaukee Bucks squad (no Giannis Antetokounmpo, no Eric Bledsoe, and no Brook Lopez), Westbrook recorded 15 points, 11 rebounds, and 17 assists on 7-for-10 shooting.

This was his third straight triple-double and his 34th of the season. It was also his 138th of his career, tying him with Magic Johnson for the second most triple-doubles in NBA history.

Other key contributions for the Thunder came from Jerami Grant (career-high 28 points) and Dennis Schroder (32 points, career-high eight 3-pointers).

For the Bucks, Tim Frazier, who played all 48 minutes of the game as the starting guard, recorded a double-double with 29 points and 13 assists.

With this 11-point win in Milwaukee, the Oklahoma City Thunder locked up the sixth seed in the Western Conference. OKC will face the No. 3 seed Portland Trail Blazers in the opening round of the 2019 postseason.

Comparatively, this game had no bearing for the Bucks as they had locked up the best record in the league a week earlier.
