Please Help Downshifting Issue

Hey guys I have a problem downshifting from 3rd to 2nd where the car literally doesn't slow down. It allows me to shift down to 2nd no problem no grinding, but it doesn't slow down even with a rev match and the mixture of brakes unless I really step down on them. I've always used engine braking, but this is a real problem. Also 2nd gear has always been an issue with my car as upshifting to 2nd is not easy and grinds half the time. My mechanic tells me that my 2nd gear synchro is worn, could this be the downshifting issue i'm witnessing? All help is appreciated!
