Less than six years into his NBA career, Mike Conley Jr. has become the Memphis Grizzlies' all-time assist leader. The previous leader was street ball-style point guard Jason Williams.

Conley is now at 2,079 and counting.

Anyone else miss J-Will slicing and dicing defenses with passes off of his elbows?

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.

Grizzlies play-by-play announcer Pete Pranica offered up praise to the most unlikely record-holder in the league. With that being said, Conley is a very deserving player.

Congrats to @mconley11 ... New @memgrizz all time assist leader! #GoGrizz

Conley is one of the brightest young players in the league. He's a top-five defender for his position, underrated facilitator and one of the better clutch scorers.

Now he has a record to show for it.
