Kalista typically has a much larger longest kill spree than her opponent does. Commonly, Kalista receives more damage than Azir. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the champ with more health has less agility and thus is unable to flee from further damage when engaged or poked.

Kalista usually tallies a similar number of minion kills than Azir. Champs that don't get very much CS normally don't require much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling properly off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of gold to be useful. In either situation, try to exceed the averages shown here to do well.
