The Cleveland Cavaliers have staved off elimination from basketball's NBA play-offs, winning game five of their Eastern Conference series against the Orlando Magic, 112-102.

It means the Cavaliers, who were title favourites heading into the play-offs, now trail Orlando two games to three in the best of seven series for a place in the NBA finals.
