(Newser) – Only half of the fans who bought tickets to the Cleveland Cavaliers game against the Indiana Pacers today were able to fight through more than a foot of snow to get there. LeBron James made sure the trip was worth the risk with 38 points in a 103-95, reports the Associated Press. James has scored 25 or more points in 21 straight games.

"Even with the weather as bad as it was it was great to see so many people come out and support us," James said. Anderson Varejao also had 15 points and 16 rebounds for Cavaliers. Cleveland led by as many as 21 and put the game away in the third quarter thanks to 18 points by James.
