Xin zhao normally has a similar longest kill spree as his enemy does. On average, Xin Zhao receives a similar amount of damage to Nasus. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also show that the champion with higher health has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.

Xin Zhao often gets many fewer minion kills than Nasus. Champions who on average don't acquire a lot of minion kills normally do not have to have much CS to be effective.
