"Some" in Turkish

According to what I've been reading, both "bazı" and "biraz" can be used to mean "some" in Turkish. My problem has been that I'll use the one when I should use the other.

The only working hypothesis I can figure out is that "biraz" means "some discrete items" (mountains, trees, dogs, people), while "bazı" means "some of a larger mass" (of sugar, water, sand). Does that sound right, or am I just confusing myself further?
