Illaoi usually has a much larger longest killing spree than her enemy does. On average, Illaoi receives more damage than Braum. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also show that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional damage when poked or engaged.

Illaoi commonly gets many more minion kills than Braum. Champions who on average do not get very much CS normally do not require much CS to be effective.
