  whiteshark: 14...Nh7 has some drawbacks - such as it will not be moved anymore during the game.

Equalizing is <14...g5 15.00 Bd7 16.a5 b5 17.axb6 Qxb6 18.Na4 Qb7 19.Re1 Bb5 20.Qc2 Bxe2 21.Nxe2 Nh5=>

  Gilmoy: Black put all his eggs into the Bh8-Qf6 battery, with the Nc4-Nxb2 trap to steal a pawn. White slyly gave him some rope: 19.Ne2 <attacks c4> Nxb2? 20.Bd2 <no escape>. If Black meekly retreats his N instead, he either blocks his Q-side, or 19..Ne5 becomes a target for f4 Nd7 with comically bad congestion.

Nh7 might go Nf8, but in this case, that's also a dead-end. I think this is why we play for g5 in KID/Benoni structures.
