This achievement can be unlocked by having at least twice the score of the CPU team at the end of the game. Although you can do this obviously by trying to score as many points as possible, it's actually easier to keep the game as low scoring as possible; it's easier to score 20 and beat your opponent by 10 than trying to score 80-100 and beating your opponent by 50. And there seems to be this weird rubberbanding effect if the CPU is way down in the 2nd half where they pretty much become unstoppable and dunk everything.

Having said that, the way I did this was to use the following settings

Mode: Play Now (although you can do Classic Campaign as well)
Difficulty: Rookie
Quarter Time: 2 Mins

Now to make this easier, select a team/player that is good at stealing (STL), blocking (BLK), and dunking (DNK). I selected Miami as both Wade and Lebron are pretty good at these attributes. For the opponent I selected Charlotte which has two players who have pretty low attributes.

Now once the game starts, socre a couple of buckets to get a cushion. When the CPU gets the ball, try a steal in the backcourt or stay in front of them as they cross mid-court to (usually) bring them to a stop. When the CPU stops moving, try for another steal. If you stay close and in front of the CPU, they usually try to pull up for a jumper. Wait until they get to the top of their shot THEN jump for the block. Repeat this to keep the CPU's score down. Now, once back on offense, hold the ball until the shot clock is under 5. This keeps the score extremely low, usually resulting in a game that is in the teens or low 20s (for you), as there will only be a few possessions in each quarter. Using this method, I was able to double up a team almost every time.
