Azir Stats

Ekko usually has a much larger longest kill spree than his counter does. On average, Ekko receives more damage than Azir. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also show that the one champion has less mobility and thus is not able to escape additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Ekko vs Azir matchups, Ekko often tallies many fewer minion kills than Azir. Champions who on average do not get a lot of minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale properly off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with plenty of CS, such as ADCs, usually require a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, try to pass the values presented here to do well.
