Nasus usually has a slightly larger longest kill spree than his counter does. On average, Nasus takes more damage than Malphite. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also illustrate that the one champ has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from further harm when engaged or poked.

Nasus often earns much more CS than Malphite. Champs that do not earn very much CS normally don't have to have much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling properly off of their abilities alone. However, champs with tons of CS, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of gold to be effective. In either case, try to beat the values displayed here to do well.
