Lucian normally has a much larger longest kill spree than his enemy does. On average, Lucian takes more damage than Sona. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champ with higher HP has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Lucian vs Sona matchups, Lucian often takes much more CS than Sona. Champs who on average do not earn a lot of minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. They are able to scale adequately off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to exceed the averages shown here to do well.
