To attain this achievement, the opposing teams FG% must be below 40%; meaning that the opposing team has to take shots but miss the. I would just change the computer's sliders to have shot success at 0, but taking shots at 100.

To attain this achievement, you must allow the opposing team to be beating you by at least 10 points by the fourth quarter. I would simply edit the sliders to your favor and downgrade the opposing team's sliders EXCEPT for shot success. Allow the opposing team to score a little but then come back in the fourth easily dominating with the sliders in your favor. Contrary to belief, you can keep the quarters and and difficulty at the default settings. You do not have to play longer.

To make this simple, and to make attaining other achievements for this game easier, I recommend taking the time to edit the sliders to your favor beforehand.

When you load the game and enter the menu, look for the tab that states "Options." Once there, find the tab that says "My NBA Settings." Next, simply go to the tab that states "Game Sliders," and put the attributes to your favor as well as downgrading the computer's stat.

When you have finished, just back out and go to a quick game, in which case the game will automatically save the sliders for future games. To disable or reset the sliders to how they originally were after you have attained your achievements, just go back to the sliders and it will give you the ability to customize it to default sliders.

To get this achievement, you can just play a quick game with either a computer or two controller method. But note that if you are playing against a computer, you cannot switch teams or sign in a controller or the stats will be disable. Same as the two controller method; once the game starts, you cannot switch teams or sign out a controller when already playing with a friend.

You do have to finish the game to get the achievement.

You can change the difficulty to Rookie but it isn't actually necessary when the sliders are in your favor. If you are going for other achievements, I recommend changing the time limit of the quarters to as long as you need.

Finally, it is slightly annoying when the player you are using magically gets substituted. In the begging of the game I highly recommend going to the menu, then "Coaching," then "Coach Settings," and putting the following to MANUAL: Timeout, Substitution, Late Game Fouling.
