I come from a Third World country, Pakistan, and have been in the United States for a year now. The thing that has shocked me the most during this period has been the plight of the homeless. I never expected this problem in a country that gives aid to millions around the world. FAUZIA JAMAL KHAN Tustin

OAKLAND - With two days off before the Clippers played the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA playoffs, reserve guard Jamal Crawford was forced to be careful with his left calf. "I just got treatment, lots and lots of treatment," he said. But Crawford was able to play Thursday night in the best-of-seven series despite a calf injury that's bothering him. "The calf, it limits you a lot," he said. "It happened in the first half of [Game 2] and I pulled myself out. That's when I was actually getting a rhythm, which was weird.

Jamal Crawford made a three-point basket from half court to beat the first-quarter buzzer, giving the Clippers a five-point lead, sending the crowd at Staples Center into a frenzy. But that was a short-lived good feeling for Crawford and the rest of the Clippers reserve unit Saturday against the Golden State Warriors during Game 1 of the Western Conference first-round playoff series. The Clippers bench went eight for 30 shooting from the field, scoring only 26 points. "We're trying to find our rhythm," said Crawford, who was two for 11 shooting from the field, one for five from three-point range.

Your article on "activist" Michael Taylor moves me to write ("Radio Host's Death Linked to Equipment Dispute," May 21). In typical Times fashion, you try to canonize the former drug addict and organizer of "rallies in support of imprisoned Philadelphia journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal." Jamal is a convicted cop killer, and the evidence of his guilt is simply overwhelming. Yet Taylor and other leftists, aided and abetted by liberal media like The Times, have made him some sort of counterculture hero.

Steven Leigh Morris' "Atomic Quintet" at Playwrights' Arena is a crazy quilt of a play that tackles topics ranging from the politically monumental to the personally petty. The action is set in 1953, in a music conservatory in the Silver Mountain region of Nevada. American fortunes are at a peak--but then, so are McCarthyism, racism, the Cold War and the nuclear threat.

Two child stars of "Slumdog Millionaire" are at risk of losing their monthly stipend and their trust fund if they don't at- tend school more regularly, a trustee for the fund said Thursday. Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, 11, and Rubina Ali, 10, shot to fame after starring in the Oscar-winning movie. But these days, Azhar is showing up at school only 37% of the time, and Rubina has only a 27% attendance rate, the trustee said. "It's pathetic," said Noshir Dadrawala, who helps administer the Jai Ho trust established by the filmmakers to provide an education, living allowance and housing for the young stars, who both grew up in Mumbai's real-life shantytowns.

It has come to this in Iraq: A son cannot even lay his mother to rest. I have a good friend called Jamal, and I think of him as a brother. His mother had been sick and she died last week. Like any son, he wanted to bury her himself. But when I called him the morning of the funeral Thursday, he said that most of the men in his family would not be going to the cemetery for fear of drawing the attention of police or sectarian militias.

For more than a quarter-century, the locally based Avaz International Dance Theatre has specialized in adaptations of folklore -- adaptations more abstract and impressionistic in recent years, but still identifiably in a world dance tradition. That artistic identity radically changed Saturday with the premiere of "Guran" in the Luckman Theatre at Cal State L.A.

Kelly Jackson decided to keep it a secret. Rather than spoil the surprise, he would let his mother, who lives in Kansas City, see the Coke commercial herself. "So she called," Jackson said, "and she asked me, 'Were you on television?' and I was like, 'Well, yeah, I was.' And she said, 'Were you drinking a Coke?' And I said, 'Yeah, I was.' And she was just so happy."

After sitting out the last five games with a strained left calf, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford will play Saturday against the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center. Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said that Crawford, who hasn't played in a game since March 29 at Houston, will probably see limited playing time. “There is no minute restriction, but there will be,” Rivers said Saturday morning. “We're not going to go out there and throw him out there for 30 minutes, I can tell you that.

Jamal Crawford missed five of his first six shots Saturday, a clear sign the Clippers reserve shooting guard was out of rhythm after sitting out the last five games recovering from a strained left calf. But Crawford made his next two shots, a clear sign he is confident enough to take shots when the result hangs in the balance, even if he's still trying to find his way after being out for so long. "I think in the second half, I got more comfortable," Crawford said after scoring 10 points on three-for-eight shooting.

Clippers reserve guard Jamal Crawford came over to reporters Friday, a smile on his face, good news to deliver. “I'm practicing today,” Crawford said. “No question.” Crawford had missed the last five games with a strained left calf, but he got in a hard workout Thursday and said it “felt really good.” He then was asked if he would play Saturday against the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center. “There's definitely a chance,” Crawford said. “I think that's huge from a chemistry standpoint, getting everybody back healthy.

Jamal Crawford said he wants to be back playing in a regular-season game with the Clippers, who have only three games left before the playoffs start next weekend. Crawford couldn't say whether he is aiming to be back for Saturday's game against Sacramento, Tuesday's game against Denver or Wednesday's season finale at Portland. He missed his fifth consecutive game with a strained left calf. "I'm trying to have positive thoughts," Crawford said. "I'm optimistic with the rehab that we have been doing and that I can come back.

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said Blake Griffin's playing status would be a game-time decision and Jamal Crawford would not play Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center.

Griffin was at the Clippers' shootaround Wednesday morning getting up shots. Crawford missed the game against the Timberwolves because of a sore left Achilles' tendon that he injured against the Rockets.

The only way either of the Boykin brothers, Jamal and Ruben, escaped his family chores while growing up was to defeat the other in a game of one-on-one basketball. "We have a big yard and big trees, so the loser would have to do a lot of stuff," Jamal said. "You would have to rake the leaves in the front of the house, the side of the house and the back of the house. The games were real personal. You'd feel sorry for the loser, but you didn't want to be raking leaves."
