The gap between the injury rate of Thursday games in 2014 and that of Saturday, Sunday and Monday games

was lower than twice the gap in 2016. 


안녕하세요? ^^

이 표현에서 lower 대신 smaller로 쓰면 어색할까요?


언제나 감사드려요!

Yes. "Smaller" is not used in that context, and "lower” is used in that context. When describing a decrease of a gap in the abstract (e.g. of a rate or a percentage), the word “lower” should be used. The word “small” is used to describe an actual physical size of something. For example: Suppose there are two apples on the table. One on the left is 2 inches in diameter, and one on the right is 3 inches in diameter. Then, we can say ‘the apple on the left is smaller than the apple on the right.'
