I attempted a few combinations of players and options for this achievement, but Howard/Shaq [ORL] seemed fine. You should be able to get this achievement by scoring only alley-oops in a 2v2 (though board-breaks appear to be mostly luck) but I used the following:

3 controllers: P1-CPU vs. P2-P3
Options: 2 minutes, 0 shot-clock, Easy (in hindsight, a longer quarter would've been better, but I'm not sure if that affects the chance of the board breaking)
Players: Howard-Shaq [ORL] (high strength and dunk ratings)
Opponent: Anyone 2 players with weak strength control stats; I used the Clippers

I achieved this by attempting as many alley oops as possible. Make sure when trying to get on the offence, push from behind as it has a higher chance to make the opponent fumble. Standing inside the top of the key also encourages your CPU team mate to go for the alley-oop, if you need to build up dunks. Also be sure when passing to yourself for the alley-oop, don't continue holding the A button as you'll pass before you score. The board broke when scoring the 86th point with the following stats:

Howard (1P): 7 dunks-17 alley oops
Shaq (CPU): 8 dunks-3 alley oops

It seems to come down to chance when the board breaks as I had several matches just dunking until 50-75 points, then alley-ooping to 90 odd points and not having the board break, but you should be able to get it in a few attempts if you haven't already got it while playing normally.

NOTE: You have to be the one to make the board-breaking dunk, not your team-mate.
