NEW YORK – The NBA’s general managers are expecting a third straight Golden State-Cleveland matchup in this season’s NBA Finals, with the Warriors the pick to reclaim the title.

Such was the consensus from the annual poll of general managers by The Warriors and Cavaliers each got 97 percent of the votes cast by GMs when asked to pick the Western and Eastern conference champions — meaning, if each team got one ballot, 29 of the 30 teams voted for a rematch.

General managers weren’t allowed to vote for their own clubs. Boston got the other conference-title vote in the East, while San Antonio got the other one in the West.

The Warriors got 69 percent of votes cast to emerge as champions for the second time in three years this season, with the defending titlist Cavaliers getting the other 31 percent.
