Postgame Notes: Lakers mount comeback, but still fall short to Pelicans

In their 119-112 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night, the Lakers had Staples Center reeking of the same nauseating stench that invaded it on Thursday during their embarrassing season-opening loss to the Clippers.  Los Angeles came out of the gates flat, looking uninspired and uninterested as they fell behind by as many as
