MyScore on Google Doodle’s Basket Ball game ;(

London 2012 basketball is the thirteenth London Olympics doodle, carrying on the tradition of a Google doodle every day of the Olympics.

The sport of basketball needs no introduction, as it is one of the most popular sports in the world. Basketball is played by teams of 5 players each, and is one of the most fast-paced, high-scoring games around.

The doodle itself is in the form of a game, where the user’s aim is to make the athlete score as many points as possible. Press the spacebar to shoot – the longer you hold the spacebar before shooting, the further the ball goes.
