The mugging took place a month ago.

But Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka still remembered.

Really, how could they forget?

Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap had thoroughly manhandled them both, taking complete control of the middle and helping Utah tear the Thunder's defense to pieces. It resulted in one of Oklahoma City's worst defeats of the season, a 15-point road drubbing in which coach Scott Brooks couldn't even pinpoint a single positive.

This time, there were plenty.

Against a Jazz team that came to town fighting for its playoff life, the Thunder made things that much tougher on its division rival, exacting a small measure of revenge in a runaway 110-87 victory on Wednesday night inside Chesapeake Energy Arena.

Oklahoma City led for the final 40 minutes, eventually growing the margin to as many as 32 points and bouncing back beautifully from Monday's humbling loss at San Antonio.
