    Why is their more fouls called on Wesern Conference games compared to the East

    You look at these games where 2 western conference teams are playing its almost of norm to see each side 25+ free throws every time. On the other hand in the east 20-25 sometimes even less is the norm. What is the reason for this? Do the teams in the west drive to the rim more often? Do they play at a faster tempo? Any reasonable explanation for this?

    Western conference teams score a lot of points. That means more possessions, and more possessions could mean more "opportunities" to foul. I think "play at a faster tempo" could be it. What are others' opinions?
