You may have played Google Doodle Basketball game so many times by now and if I’m not wrong you’re still striving to beat your friends’ score. I guess most of you have given up now and started looking for a cheat for the game. That’s why you’ve landed on this page. Before you jump to the next paragraph, I want you to take a look at the screenshot below.
Yes, I’m this good at Basketball. I’m just kidding. In this post, I’m going to tell you exactly what I did to impress my friends with the score I made in a matter of seconds or a couple of mouse clicks. Many of you may know this trick but there are still thousands of people who don’t know anything about it. You can use any browser you like, but in this post I’m going to tell you how to get high score in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. I’m attaching some screenshots within the posts so that you can understand everything that’s going on here. Let’s get started.
Launch the browser and go to Google.com. You’ll see that Google has replaced its Google Doodle with a Basketball game in which a basketball player with a ball in his hands ready to put the ball through the basket. Now you need to click the ‘Blue’ button to activate the game. When you start the game, you can either use ‘Space’ key on the keyboard or ‘Left Mouse Click’ to play the game.
To start with the cheat, you have to finish a game, no matter what your score is. When you finish the game up, you’ll be able to see your score with some ‘Points’ and ‘Stars’. Now here’s the trick – If you’re using Google Chrome browser, move your mouse to the Score Number, right click on it and select ‘Inspect Element’ from the context menu to open the developers tool.
It will open a box at the bottom of the screen and show you the HTML coding that is used to display the score. Now check out the screenshot below, and the only thing you have to do is double click on the score number and change it to whatever you want in the HTML coding.
Now to cheat the Star System, you just have to replace ‘smh’ with ‘smg’ in the HTML coding. Voila! Your high score is now unbeatable. Now you can take a screenshot of your new high score and send it over to your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
If you’re using Mozilla Firefox browser, you can use Firebug to open the developers tool and change the score part in the HTML coding, and when you’re done, simply take a screenshot.

Update: I forgot to tell you about the background score, which is displayed in the flash at the top right of the game. That’s your original score and you can’t just change that thing this way. So if you’re sending your high score screenshot to your friend, just hope that they don’t notice the background score. By the way, there’s no harm in taking a chance anyway. You know what I mean.
