A fierce battle ensued in the final 10 minutes. Zhang Ru made a three-pointer as Henan pulled the score back to 68-72 heading to the final minute, but they could not complete the comeback, as Shanxi sealed the win with free throws.
The visitors from Poprad did not put on an offensive show either, but scored twice, which was sufficient for earning their first victory of the season.
"This might be another painful setback, but after all, it delivered valuable hints of the topics we have to work on," Baum said.
The win also improves the Serbian's season record to a stunning 34-1. The only defeat came in a disqualification earlier this month at the US Open, where he hit a ball in frustration which struck the line judge on the neck.
Elche will look to build on its win in the Ipurua Stadium in a duel between recently promoted teams when it entertains a solid looking Huesca.
"We haven't had an official game for quite a long time, thus leading to our huge anticipation towards it. All of us are excited about coming back on court," added China's national team center.
The Schalke coach promised to find a way to develop strategies to revitalize his players' confidence.

LONDON, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- James Rodriguez scored twice and added an assist as Everton beat Brighton 4-2 in Goodison Park to keep their 100 percent record at the top of the Premier League on Saturday.
Namibia Football Association (NFA) spokesperson Dan Kamati said that although their counterparts named a strong team, he chose to rather focus on what his team can offer and is confident that they will compete.
The 31-year-old, who is to face No. 7 seed Petra Kvitova in the next match, also became the first Chinese singles player since Li Na in 2012 to reach the fourth round at Roland-Garros.
