On the heels of Tuesday's addictive Google Doodle game, which puts you in the shoes of an Olympic hurdler racing for gold, Google has quietly added tomorrow's Doodle to the web: an interactive basketball game.
To celebrate the upcoming men's basketball quarterfinal games, a Google Doodle is already showing up in its Google Doodle gallery with a scheduled date for Wed., Aug. 8.

Here's how it works: after clicking the "play" button, you -- an Olympic basketball player -- have 24 seconds to shoot as many basketballs into the hoop as possible. The space bar sets the shot and tapping it once more shoots the ball toward the basket. It also works if you use your mouse to click the Olympian.
