  Anderson Varejao of the Cavaliers shot 7 of 8 for 17 points in the first quarter, his highest total in an NBA quarter. His previous best quarter was 14 points in the second period against Orlando Feb. 11, 2010, according to STATS LLC.

 The Knicks-Magic game was stopped for about 10 minutes between the first and second quarter after Jamie Woode, a former college cheerleader and Magic Stunt Team member, fell during a routine and was wheeled off the floor on a stretcher. She was transferred to a nearby hospital where she was breathing on her own and moving her extremities, according to paramedics who attended to her.
