Where’s the Foul?

An amazing tenant in Warriors basketball is the lack of love from the referees. How many times does Baron go to the rack and not get the call? How many times is Monta bumped in mid-air and hear no whistle?
Maybe not. The Warriors have committed 48 more personal fouls than their opponents. They have taken 166 fewer free throws. Assuredly, its partly because they have taken 174 more 3-pointers.
Am I seeing things, or do other teams get exponentially more touch fouls and three-point play opportunities than the Warriors?

    Part of the problem is that the guys on the team haven’t learned or aren’t very good at drawing fouls.
