Conley achieved the extraordinary feat at the 7:55 mark of the first quarter. He'd proceed to finish with 11 assists on the game and help lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 92-82 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.
Memphis moves to 18-6 and are now just half-a-game behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the No. 2 seed.
