Janna typically has a significant smaller longest killing spree than her enemy does. Commonly, Janna takes less damage than Azir. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champion with increased HP has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Janna vs Azir matchups, Janna often totals many fewer minion kills than Azir. Champs that do not amass very much CS usually do not require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling properly off their abilities alone. However, champions with plenty of minion kills, such as carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either situation, try to pass the averages presented here to do well.
