    This is a little deeper than it first looks.  Sure, both Nf3 & g3 seem like effective defensive moves but if white doesn't play carefully, mate may follow in a few more moves.
    This is how I see things proceeding:-

     



    { If you're not familiar with these diagrams, just click on the first move of an alternative sequence (the part within the (1.Bc2.. ) ) and you can then step through the moves using the buttons. }

    Hope some of you 'chessheads' can see even better alternatives..

    Edit: And yes you have !  melogibbo spotted this:-

    After the alternative  2.Nf3,  Qxc1+ etc.  3.Ng1, then  3...Qf4 instead of my Bd4.  If white plays 4.Nf3 again, then 4...Bd6  This overcomes the problem of white repeatedly checking black that I refer to in my diagram & in time leads to mate. But I'll leave that for him to post himself.

    Is there any reason that white's first move here could not be to move the knight down to F3?

    Yes, QxR+.

    this was too easy: both rooks are defensless, one needs to be defended and other needs to be offended and forming a bishop-queen diagonal for checkmate threat is obvious.

    Giving up a rook is better than checkmate.
