[CrazyHouse] A way for black to avoid check mate ?

I tried all the possibilities for black but i didn't find a way to avoid the check mat. I was white and i was pretty happy to sac my rook in this game, but maybe it's not just good to lost that piece because there is a way for black to avoid the check mat.
I didn't find it if there is one in game. Thanks, and sorry for my very approximate english

the answer is yes and no. black cant avoid mate but can avoid mate the way u played, by playing 15... d5-d4 blocking the diagonal and u dont have a mate for a while. However u had something better , now stay with me , its a bit long
15.@g7 Kxg7 16.Nxe8 Kf8 17Qg7 Kxe8
(17... Ke7 18.Qf6 Kxe8
( 18...Kf8 19.R@h8 B@g8 20. Rxg8 Kxg8 21. Qg7#)
19.R@h8 B@f8 20.Rxf8 Kxf8 21.Qxd8 N@e8 22.Bxh6 N@g7 23Q@h8 R@g8 24.@e7#)
18 R@f8 Kd7 19. Rxd8 Kxd8
(19...Kc6 20.Nd4 20....- 21 Q@b5)
20.Qf8 Kd7 21.Ne5 Ke6 22.Q@e7#



Cool thanks morning ! Indeed, i completely missed that possibility to block the diagonal with the pawn at the beginning. Thanks for your analysis, just for the end q e7 doesnt make a check mate (maybe i just missed one move) but if we put our bishop at f4 its good. He defends with his pawn and q e7. Ty !

Not going to do any heavy analysis but 13. @nf6 looks like the start of a winning attack.
