Double technical called in the Heat, Celtic game.
No free throws.
Why not? (irrespective of the rules)
One player might "miss" which is a deserved penalty for committing the foul to begin with.

They offset, like in football when both teams commit a penalty.

Never thought about it, but I agree with you. I disagree with the rule as it is as well.

There's no free throws on a double technical in college either.

They don't want to bog down the flow of the game.

Then why call the fouls.
No one got penalized.

I saw the replay and one player did start it.

The flow of the game would have continued if they had not called the fouls, just separated the two players and kept going.

I do think they should even up the free throws - however, even without them there is still a penalty attached in the NBA

2 technical FTs in a game gets you ejected

16 in a season gets you suspended

any can be pretense to a fine

in other levels the techical can count against your individual fouls for a game before disqualification

Not sure what it is in the NBA, but in college a technical also counts as a personsal and team foul. 7 teams foul is a 1 and 1 opportunity from the line, 10 teams fouls is 2 free throws. I saw a game earlier this year where a team was in the double bonus (10+ team fouls) less then 5 minutes into the second half because they had gotten 2 technicals called against them.
Even though a double technical is no free throws, it's still a personal and team foul, and if either of those players picks up another technical in the same game they are done.

Yep - that is true for college

Not in the NBA though - no impact on personal or team fouls

If you pick up another T in that game though you are done or 15 more in the season and you get to sit a game
