When the score between A and B team is “100:98”, is it ok to say “B is down by 2 points”? When the score between A and B team is “100:98”, is it ok to say “B is down by 2 points”? And I know there are a lot of ways to put it, could you tell me more? Thank you!

Yes. Perfect. "points" probably isn't necessary but would depend on the context. "When the score between A and B is 100-98..."

"B is down by 2 points" is fine. "B is behind by 2 points" or "B is losing by 2 points" is also used

down by two, trailing by 2, behind by two, two down, losing by two . . . . Teacher Charles Harris
