Guide By: Tailz
There are 50 achievements with a total of 1000 points.

30 Assists20
Record 30 assists or more with any team. (2) 
Start a 12 minute game using the Western Conference All-Stars versus the Memphis Grizzlies on Rookie Difficulty. Use to pass and to shoot. Once you pass quickly shoot and once you make it you'll be granted an assist.
10 Blocks20
Record 10 blocks or more with any team. 
Using an All Star team, sub in big guys at every position and adjust the CPU inside,midrange and 3pt sliders to 0 and tendencies put the CPU Attack the Basket at 100, blocking on the human side to 100. Leave the player on the CPU with ball open and he will drive to the hoop.
15 Steals20
Record 15 steals or more with any team. 
Turn all fouls off and have your Point Guard keep pressing to poke the ball away to get a steal.
Rebound Margin +720
Win the rebound battle by a margin of +7 with any team. 
You should get this easily by playing as an All Star team versus a bad team such as Memphis or Oklahoma. I got this by only playing a 3 minute game. If you are unable to get this on your own feel free to adjust the sliders in your favor.
15 Threes15
Make 15 three pointers or more with any team. 
Best way to do this is with a player with a High 3PT%. Player's that have high 3PT% are Kobe Bryant or Ray Allen. If you are having problems you can always change the sliders in your favor.
Defensive FG%15
Hold the opposing team's FG% below 40% with any team. 
Pretty easily done playing on Rookie.If you are unable to get this on your own feel free to adjust the sliders in your favor.
Lights Out15
FG% over 55% for the game [minimum 40 FGA's] with any team. 
Using the Western Conference versus the Memphis Grizzlies on a 7 minute game (Should be enough time). Use Kobe Bryant every play and use the to lose your defender, Once you do drive to the hoop for a dunk or press to shoot. You can also turn the play clock off so that once you reach 40 Attempts and have made 20 of them, you can run the clock out. If you are unable to get this on your own feel free to adjust the sliders in your favor.
Track Meet15
Score at least 15 fastbreak points with any team. 
Fast Break points are when you score when you have more men across half court then the computer. This is best done when the AI scores and you quickly do a long pass down the court and shoot or drive to the hoop. If you are unable to get this on your own feel free to adjust the sliders in your favor.
Second Unit15
Score at least 40 bench points with any team. 
Start a 4 minute game with any team on Rookie difficulty. As soon as the game starts, Sub in 5 player's from your bench. Score 40 points and the achievement is yours.
Inside Domination20
Score at least 60 points in the paint with any team. 
Not very hard playing as an All-Star team versus Oklahoma or Memphis. Every time you have the ball simply drive to the hoop and dunk,layup or shoot within the free-throw line. If you are unable to get this on your own feel free to adjust the sliders in your favor.
Good Hands20
Record 20 assists with no more than 5 turnovers with any team. 
Use the Western Conference and Chris Paul and sit outside the 3-point line and look for Kobe Bryant and pass it to him then QUICKLY shoot. Be very careful with the ball to not let the AI steal it, otherwise that is a Turnover.
All-Hustle15
Record at least 10 offensive rebounds, 5 blocks and 5 steals with any team. 
Use one of the All Star teams, Sub in all Center's at every position and adjust the human sliders to 0. Shoot and miss until you get 10 offensive rebounds. Do the same to get 5 steals by turning off Reach in fouls and 5 blocks by turning the block slider to 100.
All-Heart15
Start the 4th period losing by 10 or more points and win the game with any team. 
Play any team with an All Star team and on rookie difficulty. Let them get up by 10 to start the 4th quarter and come back to win (If it goes to Overtime that is ok).
3-For-All20
Make at least 10 3pt FG's while shooting at least 45% from 3pt range with any team. 
Adjust your 3-pointers slider in the Main menu to 100 and play a 2 minute quarter game and shoot only 3 pointers.
Ice Water15
FT% over 85% with at least 15 FTA's with any team. 
Play with the Phoenix Suns and use Steve Nash. Adjust your free throw difficulty under Options to 0 and all fouls to 100. Using Steve Nash drive to the basket on every possession and attempt a layup, you will get fouled almost every time. To shoot free throws you will have to pull the down, then the up at the point where he flicks his wrists. Since your free throw difficulty is at 0, You should make every one. You only need to attempt 15 and make 13 of those.
Lockdown20

Using an All Star team, sub in big guys at every position and adjust the CPU inside,midrange and 3pt sliders to 0, under tendencies put the CPU Attack the Basket at 100, blocking on the human side to 100.
