Users press the spacebar for the correct length of time to score a basket.
The goal is to score as many two-point baskets as possible within the 24 seconds of allotted time.
After marking the start of the games with a doodle featuring several sports, the search giant has featured individual events with new drawings each day.
Other recent playable Google Doodles have included a Moog synthesiser to mark the anniversary of the birth of inventor Robert Moog.
