Heat into NBA finals

10:28 am on 11 June 2012

The Miami Heat's LeBron James says self belief has carried him and his team into the National Basketball Association finals.

The Heat needed all seven games of the Eastern Conference playoffs to secure their finals berth, but in the end they were comfortable over the Boston Celtics 101 - 88 in game seven.

James, who scored 31 points in that game, told ESPN he feels back to his best.

Game one of the best of seven NBA finals series between the Heat and the Oklahoma Thunder is on Wednesday.
