Why does my Xbox get the red ring of death only when I play NBA 2k13?

My Xbox never gets red ring of death. But when I put in NBA 2k13 it gets two ring because it got overheated. Is the problem with my Xbox or the game? Is their anyway to prevent this?

    It's mostly the fault of the xbox but some games are more prone to making it happen then others. Your game in particular is a common complaint.Plenty of air flow will help so the plastic crate is a good idea. You can also install a little bit of extra external cooling power as well. For $15 it's a good investment.

    Both: the game is causing overheating and the xbox cannot expel it. I suggest putting the xbox on one of those plastic crates with all the holes in them. It helped my overheating problem!
