    Live-Ball / Dead-Ball Fouls
• When a live-ball foul by one team is
  followed by one or more dead-ball fouls
  (including live-ball fouls treated as
  dead-ball fouls) by an opponent or by
  the same team, the penalties are
  administered separately and in the
  order of occurrence.
• [i.e. deal with the live-ball foul first and
  then the dead-ball foul(s).
