Default Game lagging

Hi! I just downloaded NBA 2k13 onto my laptop and it lags. It's a toshiba that I got about a year ago and it is the only game I've ever downloaded or installed on here. Can anybody help me out with what the problem might be?
I should preface that I know next to nothing about anything computer related, so I would really appreciate it if you guys can try to dumb down how to do anything you recommend. Thank you all so much I really appreciate it

Hello there,
there might be many cases why your game may lag.
1. Your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements needed to run the game properly. This means that either your CPU,Graphics Card,RAM Memory or all of these combined are too slow to run this game.
2.You should download a rock solid tool called CCleaner. It cleans your system and prevents it from bloating.
3. Have you tried disk defragmentation?
4. Try Game Booster. It's a free app. Launch the game with the program's launcher. It's a very good tool that will help increase game performance.
Ask me if you don't understand something from the above,and contact me if anything of these worked for you or not.

EDIT: Please don't discuss torrents on this forum.

The game is graphic intensive so logic would dictate the root problem is the graphics chip just can't handle it.

Not enough cooling for the graphic card . Plus laptops are not well known to be playing games.
