The 31-year-old Conley is now in his 12th season and has widely been known as one of the best players to never appear in the All-Star Game for the past few seasons. A foot injury limited him to just 12 games last season, but he hasn't missed a beat this season. His 21.1-point scoring average is the best of his career, as is his 6.7 assists per game.
And that's why the Grizzlies lean so heavily on Mike Conley in these games. He's played all 12 minutes in 2 of the last 3 games and 5 times this season because by God they can barely afford for him not to— Peter Edmiston (@peteredmiston) November 28, 2018
