Je ne sais quoi

The Lakers clearly struggled at times with length and athleticism of the Blazers, needing to win the game at the defensive end. It was the first meeting of the season with Portland, but it hasn’t been easy recently. The teams have now split their last six meetings over three seasons.
“You have to put it in perspective that Portland always gives us a hard time,” said Rony Turiaf.
And why is that?
“I don’t know. I don’t know. I really don’t know,” said the Frenchman, shaking his head. “ All I know is every time we play them we have a hard time. You can look at the box scores, it’s always like that. Regardless of who is on the roster, regardless of what has happened. We always have a hard time. I don’t know why, though.”
