Kalista typically has a much larger longest killing spree than her counter does. Typically, Kalista takes less damage than Amumu. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities; however, it can also illustrate that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Kalista vs Amumu matchups, Kalista often gets many more minion kills than Amumu. Champs who on average do not earn many minion kills normally don't need much CS to be useful.
