8.Bxb2 winning the rook
10.Bb5+? Bd2 looks better
14.Be3? Activating rooks is better
15.f3? Activating rooks or f4

16, 17.. Getting a pawn to a5 and a knight to b6 could have been a plan

You're endgame was pretty alright. Promoting the b pawn and sacing the g pawn was definitely the best plan

And I don't know about this d5 move, sure, you're attacking the knight, but you're giving him the e5 square and a beautiful diagonal for the bishop.
