Nidalee often has a much larger longest kill spree than her enemy does. On average, Nidalee receives more damage than Blitzcrank. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champ with higher HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Nidalee typically racks up a similar amount of CS than Blitzcrank. Champs who on average do not finish with many minion kills normally do not require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale properly off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with plenty of CS, such as carries, usually have to have a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, work to top the averages shown here to do well.
