    After 2. Ba4, why would you say that the only move that postpones mate is 2...Nb4?  You really need to look more carefully.  If you can see 2...Nb4, then I'm willing to bet that you can see the correct move for black on move two.

    Excause me, here is an another opinion.

    When White Moves Bishop (Ba4), Black kicking White Pawn with Bishop (Bxd4) . To open the (c) file for (a8) Rook and taking a Strategaicl Defensive Position. Otherwise King could escape by (Ke5), when White third move would be (Bc2).

    Example nu.1:

    Bg5+  Kf5

    Ba4  Bxd4

    cxd4  Rc8

    Example nu.2

    Bg5+  Kf5

    Ba4  Bxd4

    Bc2+  Ke5
