Ezreal usually has a much larger longest killing spree than his foe does. On average, Ezreal takes more damage than Malzahar. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also hint that the champ with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional damage when poked or engaged.

Ezreal typically gets less CS than Malzahar. Champions who on average don't get much CS usually don't require much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling easily off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically need a lot of items to be effective.
