I'd imagine that the wizards would realize that they'd need to focus their powers or something. Gandalf had a hard enough time with one Balrog. In the end i'd see it happening like this. Or dig up some ancient artifact of power and use it, tho I'm not to sure how powerful Middle Earth magic can get.
Either way, we don't really know a lot about them, like if the movie giants can even leave the mountains. As for the book, they were mentioned so briefly that we don't know how big they were. We know that they're certainly large enough to hurl huge stones around and make noise like thunder, but that's not much to go on.

to him who loved them so.
Where the faint murmurs now dwindling
echo o’er tide and shore."

You forget than Gandalf tried to run from the Balrog as well and told the others they could no nothing to stop the Balrog. The only reason I "facedown" the balrog was to save the others and keep the mission allive. He had ever intention of running from the balrog and not fighting him as well. I think a sufficient number of Balrogs.. Dragos.. Wizards..Ents.. and Witch-King but hordes of men... elves and dwarfs should be able to beat them soundly.
Yeah, all out battles and exterminating every threat has never been Gandalf's agenda. He has goals and he'll work to achieve them by ways that make sense, and if running makes more sense than risking obvious death, he'll do it. He's not in to pointless fighting and action scenes. Unlike a certain bad prequel.

The Istari could bring down the Stone Giants with sorcery, but not in direct combat.
Apropos; the Maiar or Valar are the foremost creatures on Arda and could travel to Middle Earth just to stop the Stone Giants.
However, they could have stopped Melkor or Sauron as well.
Tulkas is physically stronger than Hercules, and laughed in Melkor's face when threatened. He's a Valar who's a wrestler with super-strength.
