I am guessing black was anticipating that white would have to play 1.Rxf4 allowing black a fork from d3 at some point.

This is exactly the sort of tactic that would beat me over the board as black. Knights- I hate them!

1.Qh3 makes black have to choose between losing a knight or the exchange.

1.Qh3 Qh3 2.gh3 Nc6 3.Nd7 forking the rooks.
